About the Author

Christopher Lloyd read history at Cambridge, where he graduated with a double-first, before becoming technology correspondent for the Sunday Times. In 1994 he won the Texaco award for the Science Journalist of the Year. After leaving journalism, he ran a number of internet and educational publishing businesses. In 2006 he decided to home-school his two daughters, and the inspiration to write his first book, What On Earth Happened?, published in 2008, came during a four-month tour of Europe with his family. whatonearthbooks.com / @wallbook
