John Higgs takes his readers on a journey from Dover, up through London and the Midlands to North Wales on a route that was once a pathway through forest, then a meandering trackway, then a road, made straight by the Romans. For Higgs, ‘there is no road anywhere in the world that has produced so many stories’, and travelling along Watling Street, he explores how it has been shaping our history, culture and personal identities for thousands of years.
