Join Alice Roberts as she delves into archaeology, history and genetics to reveal the amazing stories of three species that became our allies. For hundreds of thousands of years, our ancestors depended on wild plants and animals. They were hunter-gatherers, consummate survival experts, but taking the world as they found it.

Alice Roberts will be doing a book-signing after her talk in the Aston Webb lecture theatre foyer.
