A Little History of... how it all began

Following in the footsteps of E. H. Gombrich's worldwide bestseller A Little History of the World, the books in our Little Histories series explore the history of the world's most remarkable people, events and ideas. With engaging personal insights, our authors will take you on a whistle-stop journey from ancient times to the present exploring all of life's big subjects from archaeology to science.

‘Have you ever come across an old school exercise book or something else you once wrote and, on leafing through it, been amazed at how much you have changed in such a short time? Amazed by your mistakes, but also by the good things you had written? Yet at the time you hadn’t noticed that you were changing. Well, the history of the world is just the same.’ – E. H. Gombrich, A Little History of the World
