Summary
"A journey into an ancient world - '...a journey through time, as well as through landscape. These two dimensions will provide material for a travelogue that will encourage readers to look at and see their old familiar landscapes, in different ways. Even those parts that people think of as 'wild', 'natural' or 'untouched' are in fact the product of the hand of men and women at work for 12,000 and more years. There is not a square foot of ground that hasn't been touched and irrevocably altered by us and our forebears. Who indeed where the first Britons, and what world did they occupy? The book will be, in a part, a Rough Guide to the pat that is all around us, and in part something of a book of wonders. What archeologists call Prehistory accounts in fact for more than 99 per cent of the story of humankind on these islands. It is, in many ways, an untold story - and so much of it is astonishing..."--Publisher's description
