Whether writing about the family who trod the estuarine muds of Happisburgh in Norfolk around 900,000 BC, the craftsmen who built a wooden trackway in the Somerset Levels early in the fourth millennium BC, or the Iron Age denizens of the first towns, Francis Pryor uses excavations and surveys to uncover the daily routines of the early inhabitants of Britain. By revealing how our prehistoric forerunners coped with both simple practical problems and more existential challenges, he offers a movingly human portrait of prehistoric life.
