From the bestselling author of The Story of the British Isles in 100 Places comes an outstanding new history of how our world was made. 'Oliver is an evocative storyteller, vividly bringing his tales to life' BBC HistoryNeil Oliver takes us on a whistle-stop tour around the world and through a million years to give us this unique and invaluable grasp of how human history pieces together. From the east to the west, north to south, these 100 moments act like stepping stones allowing us to make sense of how these pivotal events have shaped the world we know today. Including many moments readers will expect - from Genghis Khan's domination on earth to Armstrong's first steps on the moon, and from the advent of the printing press to the birth of the internet - there are also surprises, and with them, some remarkable, unforgettable stories that give a whole new insight on our past. ********************* Praise for Neil Oliver 'Brilliantly demonstrates Neil's mastery of the broad sweep of British history and landscape.' - Dan Snow 'Neil Oliver brings his vast experience and expertise to bear on this deeply personal journey into British history - a wonderful read. - Professor Alice Roberts 'Highly-crafted...a vivid, pungent history.' - TLS 'Compelling' - Daily Mail
