How much do we really know about the place we call 'home'? In this
sweeping, timely book, Nicholas Crane tells the story of Britain.
Over the course of 12,000 years of continuous human occupation, the
British landscape has been transformed form a European peninsula of
glacier and tundra to an island of glittering cities and exquisite
countryside. In this geographical journey through time, we discover
the ancient relationship between people and place and the
deep-rooted tensions between town and countryside. From tsunamis to
Roman debacles, from henge to high-rise and hamlet to metropolis,
this is a book about change and adaptation. As Britain lurches
towards a more sustainable future, it is the story of our age.
