Homo Britannicus by Chris Stringer
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Oxbow says: Chris Stringer, a world renowned name in the field of human origins, is based at the Natural History Museum in London where he leads a team of researchers studying human origins in Britain. The findings of his Ancient Human Occupation of Britain project forms the backbone of this, the first popular book on human origins in Britain written for a non-specialist audience. Homo Britannicus is an interesting and engaging look at the when, where, how and why of the earliest colonisation of Britain, our prehistoric ancestor's way of life and why it could not be sustained. It is the story of a fluctuating climate, extreme environmental change and man's battle for survival at a time when Britain was so tropical that our ancestors lived alongside hippos, and when Britain was so cold that reindeer and mammoth roamed the land. Highly acclaimed and well worth a read.
