5.0 out of 5 stars Homo Britannicus, A review of hominins in Britain by the Rob Walsh, director of The Lewis Research Unit, 3 Nov. 2006
Homo Britannicus by Prof Chris Stringer, is a thoughtful account of human life in Britain from the earliest evidence at Pakefield, Happisburg and Boxgrove(700 ka - 500 ka) to more modern occupation by the Neaderthals at Swanscombe (300 ka), and early homo sapiens, who arrived circa 12,000 years ago, following the last gacial phase. There is nothing too technical to understand for the lay reader, who knows little of human evolution, yet plenty to satisfy the thirstful knowledge of the more accomplished palaeontological/archaeological reader.

The book combines achaeological evidence, with Chris's own experiences as Britains foremost authority on human evolution, and makes compelling reading, for anyone interested in the history of the British Isles.

I thouroughly recomend Homo Britannicus as a more discerning Christmas present this year.
