Neil Oliver explores the world of Ancient Britain, kicking off his series, with the Age of Ice. He explores the world of the ice age, discovering the remains of the people who lived during that period.
The series opens with an archeological site in Wales: Footprints of ancient man. Then Neil explores the nomadic hunter-gatherers and the stories of survival. He then looks to the bones of our ancestors to explain the history.
Reverend William Buckland went down a cliff to explore a cave. He thought the cave contained artifacts from the Flood. He carefully documented his discovery of what he found. He discovered a human skeleton in the cave. He initially thought he found the remains of a prostitute, but it turned out the skeleton was much older. The Red Lady as he called the skeleton was part of the first group of inhabitants in Britain. It was at a time when the British Isles were part of a peninsula attached to Europe.
The first hunter gatherers to Britain came over on a land bridge. They came in small bands during a colder period in history. They hunted mammoth and deer. Life was changing and the type of life they were living would change due to the Ice Age. The world was cold and getting colder. Life was tough and was about to become impossible. Britain was becoming a frozen wilderness. The entire population of Western Europe was wiped out. When the Ice Age ended people started coming back.
This group was hardier and could withstand the cold. They documented their life in horse bone and in caves. They lived in a landscape shaped by their environment. Power of the environment shaped the landscape our ancestors lived in. To find out more about the Age of Ice continue to watch the documentary.
