Britain is an island where history is well and truly part of the landscape and an island where human feet have walked for a million years. We are constantly making groundbreaking archaeological discoveries that are helping us to better understand the way in which our distant ancestors lived.
Join bushcraft and survival expert Ray Mears in the first episode of a brand new series as he explores Britain's distant past, from the earliest evidence of people in Britain, right up to the moment that everything would change.
In the first episode of this series, Ray speaks to Dr David Waterhouse about the discovery made at Happisburgh beach in Norfolk of footprints dating back 900,000 years, before demonstrating how our distant ancestors would have made and used flint tools for hunting and skinning game.
