Francis Pryor - regular contributor on Channel 4's Time Team and the man behind the Britain BC and Britain AD television series - maintains that early farming in Britain has been largely misunderstood, due to a loss of contact with the countryside and failure to understand prehistoric farming methods. To redress this problem, this book reconstructs the lives of prehistoric farmers, with the author using his experience as a professional farmer to provide details on crop cultivation and flock management. Pryor also shows how, in the millennium leading up to about 700 BC, areas of lowland England developed an intensive style of livestock rearing resulting in a range of fascinating bronze, iron and gold artifacts being produced.
