Sarum: The Novel of England by Edward Rutherford

It turns out that England has been around for quite some time. So, this is a long book. I think it is the only novel I have read that has a 4,500 year span.  We start off during the ice age, where the first character walks over a land bridge from Russia into Northern Britain with the intention of walking South through the country, to eventually cross over another land bridge into what is now France. But then the ice caps melt quickly, and the English Channel is created, and, oh no! He’s stuck in England, poor chap. Still, he makes the best of it and settles in what eventually becomes Salisbury.
