My poor Neanderthals didn’t half see some weather.
SONG HUNTER is set 40,000 years ago. England (which wasn’t on an island, then, but was part of a landmass generally called, very charmingly, Doggerland) was mostly steppe, which is mixed grassland and bog with a few small shrubs. The top summer temperature was about 10C. A chilly night could easily go down to -27C.
But still, it wouldn’t have been all bad.
It's true that my Neanderthals would have had to live with lions, giant bulls, mammoths and cave bears breathing down their necks.
Oh, and hyenas. ..
...but at least there wouldn’t have been nearly so many slugs, would there.
