From Neolithic Britain to the 21st Century, animals have proved an important part of British lives from sports and wars to pets and food production. Which animals were made extinct and which have been reintroduced? What caused the Black Death? Which king passed a law that encouraged everyone to hunt animals in the wild? Why was the pit pony essential for coal-mining? All these questions and many more are explored in this fascinating account of Britain's history through animals.
