From Sam Willis, presenter of the BBC's The Silk Road and Invasion! and Professor James Daybell comes an exciting new history show that will change the way that you think about the past...and the present.

What links together the Titanic, Pompeii, Neolithic cave painting, Victorian perfumes, electrical experiments on the human face, Charles I, Mary Queen of Scots, scalping, Elizabeth I, Nelson, Henry VIII, Proust, Hiroshima, the Duke of Wellington, slavery, scarification, Glaswegian gangs, Darwin, Shakespeare, mutiny, chimneys, a skull, a seventeenth century map of the world, shoes and gloves?
