Homo Britannicus tells the epic history of life in Britain, from man's very first footsteps to the present day. Drawing on all the latest evidence and techniques of investigation, Chris Stringer describes times when Britain was so tropical that man lived alongside hippos and sabre tooth tiger, times so cold we shared this land with reindeer and mammoth, and times colder still when we were forced to flee altogether. This is the first time we have known the full extent of this history: the Ancient Human Occupation of Britain project, led by Chris, has made discoveries that have stunned the world, pushing back the earliest date of arrival to 700,000 years ago. Our ancestors have been fighting a dramatic battle for survival here ever since.

Review:
'A superlative achievement. HOMO BRITANNICUS is pure stimulation
from beginning to end.' -- Bill Bryson

indeed, in the story of the British landscape.' -- Richard Fortey

'This important and eminently readable book pulls together all the
best scientific work on the first humans to inhabit Britain.' -- Tony Robinson

This is a fantastically accessible science book laced with mystery
and intrigue.If you read one book this year,make it this.
-- Sally Palmer, Focus Magazine December 2006

‘This is a beautiful book on a fascinating subject, written by the
world authority. What more could one ask?’ -- Richard Dawkins
