Britain Begins

Barry Cunliffe

  • The story of the origins of the British and Irish peoples, from 10,000 BC to the eve of the Norman Conquest
  • A sweeping narrative account of the first islanders - who they were, where they came from, and how they related to each other
  • Uses the latest archaeological and DNA evidence to trace the origins and movements of these early settlers
  • Explores the rich mythology created over the centuries by means of which our more recent ancestors tried to piece together the story of our shared origins
