The Making of the British Landscape

Nicholas Crane is a familiar face from the BBC’s Coast, who is also an award winning author, expert cartographer, international explorer, and the current President of the Royal Geographical Society.

Nick will be talking about his fascinating new book which brilliantly describes the evolution of Britain’s countryside and the development of its cities. As the Iron Age develops into a pre-Roman 'Golden Era', Nick looks at what the Romans did (and didn't) contribute to the British landscape.

Major landscape 'events' - the Black Death, enclosures, urbanisation, recreation are described and explored in perfect detail, weaving the role played by geology in shaping our cities, industry and recreation, the effect of climate and of global economics.

The Making of the British Landscape concludes with thought-provoking and urgent questions about the future of Britain's landscape.
