Head of Zeus
Mammoth Hunters Ben Garrod

Travel through history to the time of the mammoth hunters with TV presenter, Professor Ben Garrod. Full colour narrative non-fiction that gives a rare insight into a once-in-a-lifetime discovery of what may be the world's oldest human hunting site.

What was life like for our ancestors 500,000 years ago and what happened to them? Digging at a secret location, Professor Ben Garrod recreates a snapshot in time – when we fought off cave bears and giant lions to bring down herds of towering mammoths.

This is the beginning of what could be a decade-long project chronicling the dig, initial discoveries and subsequent analyses from what may be the oldest human hunting site anywhere in the world. This is the first step on an exhilarating journey that may rewrite the way we understand our ancestors.
