Product description

Review

Be prepared to have all your cherished notions of English history and Britishness swept away. (Clive Gamble)

The historians' account is wrong in almost every detail. In Dr
Oppenheimer's reconstruction of events, the principal ancestors
of today's British and Irish populations arrived from Spain
about 16,000 years ago.

(New York Times)

He upends some of the most deeply rooted notions of where
the British people come from, and does so in a clear, painstaking
and detailed way. The result is both fascinating and unexpected.

(Geographical)

Particularly illuminating ... The author carefully lays out the genetic data that show how three-quarters of Britishness dates to the repopulation after the northern ice sheets last retreated, and
takes us through a fascinating investigation of what this means for some cherished notions of Britishness.

(Nature)

Book Description

'British prehistory will never look the same again.' Professor Colin Renfrew, University of Cambridge
