    • A global narrative history of how civilizations have accumulated knowledge. Winchester follows the eccentric ways and by-ways of those who compile encyclopaedias, dictionaries and online resources and addresses the consequences of the democratisation of knowledge. Follow as humans draw on the cave wall and invent the internet, as they learn the value of almanacs and fight against censorship. An ambitious and colourful journey spanning twelve millennia.
