This is the story of the London basin over half a million years, which follows changes in landscape and human society. It starts with ice-sheets expanding further and further south, pushing the River Thames into its present position, and ends with the arrival of the Roman legions. In between are Ice Age hunters camping by the Thames, followed by elephants and hippos whose bones have been found in Trafalgar Square. Later, hunters caught reindeer in west London and the first farmers hacked their fields from wild forest. As the landscape was tamed, settlements of peasants and traders grew, Celtic-speaking chiefdoms developed and began relations with the expanding Roman empire. Using the latest research and illustrated by many photographs and vivid reconstructions, this book gives a glimpse into the lives of the thousands of generations of people who have lived in the region we now call London.
