Series 1 EPISODES (5)
Ray Mears embarks on a voyage of discovery into the lost foods of Britain's Stone Age. Ray travels to Australia to see how food gathering means so much more than just diet to the Australian Aborigines.
Ray Mears draws on all his Bushcraft skills to unlock the past and explore the hunter gatherer foods of Stone Age Britons. He tries out the processes they might have used, and tastes the foods of our forefathers.
3 Britain's Wetlands
Wetlands were the highways of Stone Age Britain and a habitat rich in wild foods. Ray Mears processes water lily seeds, tries spear fishing from a canoe and tastes plant matter from a pollen core thousands of years old.

Hunter-gatherers rely on meat more than any other food. Ray Mears shows how their lifestyle revolves around the hunt. He finds seeds that can be made into biscuits for trail snacks, and shows how many meals a deer can provide.
In the last of the series, Ray takes us to the woodland environment to examine how our mesolithic ancestors survived.
