Taking an encyclopaedic sweep through our archaeological story, Francis Pryor covers everyone from the first Neolithic farmers to the architects of Spaghetti Junction. From canals to windfarms, from dukes laying out their estates in the eighteenth century to commercial firms expanding the popularity of the golf course, he shows us the human race attempting to shape the landscape of the British Isles.

The British landscape is as rich a source of inspiration as ever and this book makes an excellent companion guide.
