GREG JENNER A Million Years in a Day A History of Everyday Life

A history of our everyday rituals, by the historical consultant for the Horrible Histories TV series. Structured around one ordinary day, A Million Years in a Day is a gloriously entertaining romp through human history that reveals the astonishing origins and evolution of the daily practices we take for granted. Greg Jenner has scoured Roman rubbish bins, Egyptian tombs and Victorian sewers to bring us the most intriguing, surprising and sometimes downright silly nuggets from our past. Drawn from across the world, spanning a million years of humanity, it is a history of all those things you always wondered – and many you have never considered. Over the past four years Greg Jenner has been solely responsible for the factual accuracy of nearly 1,000 comedy sketches with subject matter spanning the entirety of human history. His gloriously energetic Twitter presence has amassed him over 16,000 followers.
