It is the story of a multicultural civilization, linked by a common language.It is the story of how ideas travelled in prehistory, how technology and art spread across the continent.
It is the story of a five-hundred year fight between two civilizations that came to define the world we live in today.It is the story of a culture that changed Europe forever. 'Roberts's lightness of touch is joyous, and celebratory' Observer'Clear-spoken and enthusiastic' Telegraph
