15,000 years ago, Britain was home to lions, lynx, bears, wolves and bison. Will we ever be able to bring these mammals back? And if it's possible, should we? Palaeontologist Ross Barnett uses case studies, fossil discoveries, biomolecular evidence and more to paint a picture of these lost species and explore the ecological significance of their disappearance. He examines the potential of reintroduction, rewilding and even of resurrection, both in Britain and overseas, from the innovative Oostvaardersplassen nature reserve to the revolutionary Pleistocene Park in Siberia.
