Historian Greg Jenner (Historical Consultant to Horrible Histories) and author of A Million Years in a Day explores how our morning routines – washing, using the toilet, breakfast, walking the dog – have evolved over millennia, and reveals just how much we have in common with our ancestors. 

A perfect family event, the wonderfully, nerdishly funny Greg Jenner has dug up the most intriguing, surprising and sometimes downright silly nuggets from our past.
