Summary

Neil Oliver examines what impact the arrival of farming had on ancient social structures. He dives off the Isle of Wight where archaeologists have found an 8,000-year-old hunter settlement and learns what happened when hunter-gatherers met farmers for the first time. The historian reveals that when cultivation eventually came to Britain around 4,000 BC, it brought about the Neolithic era and a deep set of changes in people's way of life, from ground-breaking inventions like pottery, to new belief systems.
