The much-loved popular historian returns to the festival to talk about his brilliant new book, The Story of the World in 100 Moments. Neil brings the past to vivid life as he takes the reader on a whistle-stop tour around the planet and through a million years to give us a unique and invaluable grasp of how human history fits together. A superb, warm and passionate communicator, Neil brings to life the stone and bones of archaeology, the basis of modern science and the endless, intertwined machinations of kings, queens and politicians. This a beautifully written, memorable history of us and here.
