If we compressed 200,000 years of human history into 24 hours

This is what it would look like! I find this utterly fascinating and it's a little like another analogy that's always stuck with me, taught by my Shinrin-yoku mentor and tutor, Stefan. That is, if we took human evolution in it's entirety (around 6/7 million years) and you laid it out on a football pitch, the entire football pitch would be our evolution within a natural (and specifically forested environment) and a one penny piece, laid out on that football pitch, would be the time we've spent evolving and living outside of the forest. Incredible.

This slide is taken from a study done within the Surrey Hills by William Bird and Intelligent Health, along with the Surrey Hills National Park.
