'Oliver is an evocative storyteller, vividly bringing his tales to life' BBC History

From Genghis Khan's domination on earth to Armstrong's first steps on the moon, discover the 100 moments that defined humanity and shaped our world forever.

Neil Oliver takes us on a whistle-stop tour around the world and through a million years to give us this unique and invaluable grasp of how human history pieces together.

From the east to the west, north to south, these 100 moments act like stepping stones allowing us to make sense of how these pivotal events have shaped the world we know today.

Including many moments readers will expect - from the advent of the printing press to the birth of the internet - there are also surprises, and with them, some remarkable, unforgettable stories that give a whole new insight on our past.

From the bestselling author of The Story of the British Isles in 100 Places, this is outstanding new history of how our world was made from 5000 BC to the present.

Praise for Neil Oliver

'Neil Oliver writes beautifully - bringing the past to life and letting us see ourselves in a new light.' - Professor Alice Roberts
'Brilliantly demonstrates Neil's mastery of the broad sweep of British history and landscape.' - Dan Snow
'Highly-crafted...a vivid, pungent history.' - TLS
'Compelling' - Daily Mail

Fascinating...This reminds us of the great, enduring importance of looking back at the past in order to better understand the present and help us in the future. A must-read this year.Oliver continues to write his beautiful, lyrical stories, and refuses to be anything other than himself. Maybe the people who persist in throwing ideological toilet paper at him could learn something from that. Meanwhile, for the rest of us, the best way to see Neil Oliver as he really is, is to read his books.
