Animals That Changed History
Take a journey through time and around the globe as we explore the incredible history of the animal world and its relationship to human civilisation. Discover some of the ways that animals have changed the course of human history, through trade, religion, war and medicine. Goats discovered one of our most loved and economically important beverages: coffee; pigeons helped carry vital intelligence that changed the face of World War One; and the common fruit fly has been an essential part of the development of genetic research - these are just a few examples of the many ways animals have touched human life. Animals are so often overlooked when we talk about human history, but where would we be without them?
