Originally published to tie in with the seven part Channel Four series, this is an exploration of the lives of the ordinary inhabitants of Britain, starting when Britain first became an island at the close of the last Ice Age and ending at the beginning of the agricultural and industrial revolutions.
Beneath the names and dates of schoolbook history there is another, often overlooked story - the history of the people as a whole and their experience of life through the ages. SEVEN AGES OF BRITAIN is a unique television and print social history telling the story of the people of Britain from the Mesolithic to the dawning of the agricultural revolution. It will explore the lives and times of the ordinary people of Britain who rarely emerge into the light of written history but nonetheless were witness to its every twist and turn.
