How much do we really know about the place we call home?In this timely sweeping book, Nicholas Crane tells the story of Britain.The British landscape was continuously occupied by humans for 12,000 years from the end of the ice age to the twenty-first century.It has been transformed from a European peninsula of glacier and tundra to an island of sparkling 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 city and country.The twin pilots of the landscape change – climate and population – have undoubtedly had as much influence on our habitat as monarchs and politics.These are tsunamis and agriculture to the Roman debacle and industrial cataclysms, high henge and hamlet to the metropolis, a book on change and adaptation.As Britain exposes a past of exploitation towards a more sustainable future, this is the history of our time.
