£9.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Who do you think you are?



Have you ever thought about who you might be related too? What if we told you were related to vicious Vikings, Roman emperors, great kings and feisty queens?



Well, your majesty, you are. In fact, everyone is. And geneticist Adam Rutherford is here to tell you why.



On this extraordinary adventure through millions of years of human history, young readers will learn the story of our species. They will meet kings and queens. They will see how humans migrated far and wide around the globe. And they will discover that no matter what skin colour you have, language you speak or place you are from - we all share the same small pool of ancestors.



Armed with a deeper understanding of science and history, readers will learn how to dismantle common myths of who we really are - like what race is, where we come from, and what it means to be human.



Mind-boggling, entertaining and illuminating, this is the epic story of you and everyone who has ever lived!
