Flannery, Tim F.
Few people seem able to imagine the past much past the 20th century. Flannery can and does in his most readable look over the past 100 million years when Europe was just a couple of islands yet to be the landmass of so much human history. In clear and precise terms he explores the greater history of Europe, from tropical archipelago to the Ice Ages and then the recent history when humans showed up. Full of awe inspiring creatures from the past, Flannery weaves in the stories of the paleontologists and amateur bone hunters alike.
