Dazzling computer-generated imagery brings this mysterious era to life, revealing an ancient world of ice, the dawn of our ancestors, and a time when humans fought for survival alongside majestic woolly beasts. See the bigger-picture perspective on the relationship between climate, the Earth, its resources and inhabitants and consider the possible fates of today's living mammals.
