Shell Bead Taforalt, Grotte Des Pigeons


We find out how the Romans got to grips with building a 73.5 mile-long wall, why humans were bejewelled 82,000 years ago and how a disease called brucellosis indicates our ancestors were eating meat 2.6 million years ago. Plus, in Backyard Archaeology we find out how to spot an archaeological fake!
