"History's greatest tour guide-- Ian Mortimer-- takes us on an eye-opening and expansive journey through the last millennium of human innovation. We journey from a time when there was a fair chance of your village being burned to the ground by invaders ― and dried human dung was a recommended cure for cancer ― to a world in which explorers sailed into the unknown and civilizations came into conflict with each other on an epic scale. Here is a story of godly scientists, fearless adventurers, cold-hearted entrepreneurs, and strong-minded women ― a story of discovery, invention, revolution, and cataclysmic shifts in perspective.
