Illustrated by 16 pages of colour plates (one in black and white) and by 25 text figures, including maps and plans. Account of prehistoric settlement in Britain from the end of the Ice Age until the Roman invasion. It emphasises the importance of domestic and family life and especially the home. This lay at the heart of some of the most profound advances in human society, from cooking to farming, which enabled people to settle in the country that would come to be known as Britain.
