New review: Homo Britannicus, by Chris Stringer

Species of Homo have been living in Britain for much longer than was believed until recently; for 700,000 years, in fact. However, the present British population goes back no further than 11,500 years. There were long periods when life here was impossible because the country was almost entirely covered by ice, and others when it was lush and verdant and full of large animals like elephant and hippopotamus. The story of human occupation is well told in this new book, Homo Britannicus, by Chris Stringer.
