Steven Mithen

After the Ice

Hay Festival 2003, 
Drawing on the latest cutting-edge research in archaeology and the environmental sciences, Mithen leads a sweeping global tour through human history as the last ice age came to its end and the first farming communities and towns appeared. He presents a gripping and intimate picture of minds, cultures, lives and landscapes through 15,000 years that laid the foundations of the modern world.
