In Home, the Time Team expert explores the first nine thousand years of life in Britain, from the retreat of the glaciers to the Romans departure.

Tracing the settlement of domestic communities, he shows how archaeology enables us to reconstruct the evolution of habits, traditions and customs. But this, too, is Francis Pryors own story: of his passion for unearthing our past, from Yorkshire to the west country, Lincolnshire to Wales, digging in freezing winters, arid summers, mud and hurricanes, through frustrated journeys and euphoric discoveries.

Evocative and intimate, Home shows how, in going about their daily existence, our prehistoric ancestors created the institution that remains at the heart of the way we live now: the family.Under his gaze, the land starts to fill with tribes and clans wandering this way and that, leaving traces that can still be seen today . . . Pryor feels the land rather than simply knowing it - GuardianFormer president of the Council for British Archaeology, Dr Francis Pryor has spent over thirty years studying our prehistory.

He has excavated sites as diverse as Bronze Age farms, field systems and entire Iron Age villages. He appears frequently on TVs Time Team and is the author of The Making of the British Landscape, Seahenge, as well as Britain BC and Britain AD, both of which he adapted and presented as Channel 4 series.Show MoreShow
