EN SAVOIR PLUS Résumé

Take a journey into our ancient past. Explore a long-lost landscape and gradually discover the minds, beliefs and cultural practices of those souls who lived on these lands thousands of years before you.

Travelling the length and breadth of Britain, James Canton immerses himself in the landscape, chasing those physical obsessions of prehistory which prove so revealing to us today: stone circles, flint arrowheads, sacred stones, gold, tin, and a lost Roman road. He explores the wonders of the natural world which occupied ancient minds: the night sky, shooting stars, the rising and setting sun. And he wanders to the furthest reaches of our islands to seek the remnants left by our ancestors, weaving a gentle, beautiful tale of discovery: from an undeciphered Pictish stone north of Aberdeen to the first footsteps on the edge of an Ice Age land in the North Sea.

As Canton walks the terrain, familiarising himself with the geography, geomorphology and geology, he tells this captivating story of stepping into the past, of journeying across Britain’s wildest lands on a trail of prehistoric worlds. The shadows of these worlds extend into our modern world, showing that our minds are very similar to the minds of our ancestors who lived here before us. By unearthing the secrets of our ancient past we begin to realise what it is, what it has ever been, to be human.
