Who were the first Britons? Famed archaeologist Neil Oliver answers that question and more, excavating the past to weave an epic story of half-a-million years, from the mists of prehistory to the departure of the Roman Empire in the fifth century AD. As gripping as any novel, filled with fascinating facts and charismatic figures, this is popular history at its finest--a fitting monument to a land that has been home to an extraordinarily diverse range of cultures and peoples.

Neil Oliver is a Scottish archaeologist, historian, and broadcaster, is known for his distinctive voice and long black hair, and was the charismatic presenter of the award-winning documentary series Coast. His 10-part A History of Scotland on BBC2 was a critical success, as was the book of the same name that accompanied it.

In doing so he connects us to our distant past with a vividness and immediacy that catches both your imagination and at times your breath. Buy and read. -- John Clare Family Tree Magazine uses his archaeological training to good effect in a text that is both appealing and interesting - nay, fascinating - to those who have little or no training in scientific research.
