Who were the first Britons? Famed archaeologist Neil Oliver answers that question and more, excavating the past to weave an epic story of half-a-million years, from the mists of prehistory to the departure of the Roman Empire in the fifth century AD. As gripping as any novel, filled with fascinating facts and charismatic figures, this is popular history at its finest--a fitting monument to a land that has been home to an extraordinarily diverse range of cultures and peoples.
