Ten thousand years ago, a vast, fertile plain linked the British Isles to Europe. Home to a tribe of simple hunter-gatherers, Northland teems with nature's bounty, but is also subject to its whims. Fourteen-year-old Ana calls Northland home, but her world is changing. The air is warming, the ice is melting, and the seas are rising. One day Ana meets a traveler from a far-distant city called Jericho- a town that is protected by a wall. And she starts to imagine the impossible... So begins a colossal engineering project that will take decades: the building of a wall that stretches for hundreds of miles- a wall that becomes an act of defiance against the implacable forces of nature, and an act of devotion as the bones of the dead are added to it. A wall that will change the geography of the world. And its history.--From front jacket flap.
Thousands of years in the distant past, when the British Isles are linked to Europe by a vast plain called Northland, a member of a tribe of simple hunter-gatherers meets a traveler from a distant walled city called Jericho.

Great book, couldn't put it down. An apt (as far as we can tell) description of what life may have been like around the last ice age. It very much IS science fiction, just not the usual lasers and aliens stuff. Brilliant read.
