At the close of the Ice Age some 12,000 years ago, people began to return to Britain. But what were their lives like? In this richly evocative book, one of the country's leading archaeologists strips away layers of the landscape to reveal extraordinary evidence of communities living together, building not just houses but homes. Blending scientific insight and rich human sensibility, he shows how our prehistoric ancestors created the institution that remains at the heart of the way we live.
