In the summer of 1939, on the cusp of World War Two, explorers discovered three astonishing ancient treasures that would transform our understanding of the origins of civilisation. As the final summer of peace was about to conclude due to a war that threatened to end civilisation, the Sutton Hoo Hoard, the Lion Man, and the Olmec Heads provided the world with a shimmer of hope for an understanding of the diversity and origins of human culture. Dr Janina Ramirez follows the trail of the remarkable pre-war explorer archaeologists who discovered these treasures.
