DFC Library: Mezolith Ben Haggarty
MeZolith is a graphic novel for older children and adults, written by a leading oral storyteller, with extraordinarily immersive illustrations by one of Britain's top film concept artists. It imagines a year in the life of Poika - a Mesolithic boy on the cusp of adulthood. Set in what is now North East Yorkshire, 10,000 years ago before Britain became an island, stories of a small tribe's daily struggle for survival are interwoven with some of humankind's most ancient myths, fairytales and legends. Grounded in detailed archaeological research, this is a book of action and adventure, horror and romance, magic and beauty. MeZolith was one of The Times's Graphic Novels of the Year in 2010.
