The Making of the British Landscape
From the Ice Age to the Present
How much do we really know about the place we call home? This sweeping narrative tells how the British landscape has evolved over 12,000 years of human habitation. Epic in scope, it charts the age-old relationship between people and place and the deep-rooted tensions between town and country. From henge to high-rise, from Snowdonia to suburbia, it explores the way we have shaped the land and it has shaped us, and assesses the prospect of a sustainable future.
