The importance of animals to the progress of human civilization is hard to grasp in our largely urbanized society from which the animal world has become increasingly remote. In this detailed, well-illustrated work, MacGregor draws on disciplines including art history, topographical literature and archaeology to explore human interaction with animals in activities ranging from horse riding to bee-keeping; and to provide an overview of relations between human and animal populations in the British Isles over the past 1,000 years.
