A History of Ancient Britain, Series 1

Open iTunes to preview or buy TV programmes.


Neil Oliver tells the epic story of how Britain and its people came to be over thousands of years of ancient history - the beginnings of our world forged in ice, stone, and bronze. Tapping into the latest scientific detective work and experimental archaeology, discover how our ancestors emerged from the last ice age; how agriculture really came to Britain; and the tipping points that changed the course of history. Packed with insights and firsts, this ambitious series brings to life the very beginnings of civilization. Centre stage is the land itself, in all its spiritual and cultural glory.

Ancient History

An absolutly fascinating account from an enthusiastic presenter who engages and holds you. Great to hear there is evidence the creationists are talking rubbish!

Highly recommended

As a student of prehistoric archaeology, I have to say that this is a very good introduction to the subject. Even for people with some prior knowledge of the subject I would still recommend it. The presenter is enthusiastic (and you've got to love his accent), the content is up to date, and the photography and music are absolutely excellent as well. Very good.


This is one of the funniest things I have ever seen. The presenter is clearly channeling Chris Morris here.

Don't watch this if you want to learn about ancient Britain, but if you want a good giggle at some cliché-loaded melodramatic tosh, then go right ahead.
