Even if they're mammoth, woolly ones — Adventures in the Ice Age is an engaging mix of adventure and historical information about life in the last Ice Age. Did you know that Early Modern Humans looked like us? Or that Earth has been going through ice age cycles for millions of years? Find out about the world's first art gallery, Ice Age barbecues, music and more.
