The Landscape of Britain: From the Beginnings to 1914
This book explores 10,000 years of human habitation in Britain, from prehistory to the Victorian age, and the effect that it has worked on the natural environment. Michael Reed examines the evidence that enables us to recreate landscapes of the past, and looks at the monuments that have been left behind by generations of spiritual and economic activity - burial mounds, churches, monasteries, factories, railways - as well as place-names, field systems, and territorial boundaries. Develops insights into the endless process of accretion which has created the rural and urban landscapes of today.
