Our oldest ancestors are hunter-gatherers who lived from 2.5 million to only 10,000 years ago. New discoveries in disciplines from climatology to anthropology reveal the dramatic story, illustrated in over 150 photos, maps, and diagrams, of how the earliest peoples of Britain and Europe made their way there from Africa. Expert analyses treat the oldest-known human remains, the first stone tools, and animals and plants that provided food and clothing. The spectacular recent discovery of Creswell Crag cave art sheds light on the development of language and culture, including ways human biology, then and now, affects behavior and values.
