It's the story of how ideas travelled in prehistory: how technology and art spread across the continent. This is the story of a European culture that changed Britain forever"--Jacket
Tamed : ten species that changed our world by Alice M Roberts( Book )

Ten species that changed our world! For hundreds of thousands of years, our ancestors depended on wild plants and animals for survival.

They began to tame them. The human population boomed; civilisation began. In this book, Alice Roberts uncovers the amazing deep history of ten familiar species with incredible wild pasts: dogs, apples and wheat; cattle; potatoes and chickens; rice, maize, and horses - and, finally, humans. Alice Roberts not only reveals how becoming part of our world changed these animals and plants, but shows how they became our allies, essential to the survival and success of our own species - and to our future
