The Making of the British Landscape

Baillie Gifford Big Tent
In conversation with Jennifer Cox
Around 12,000 years ago, Britain was still connected to mainland Europe. From the Ice Age, through the invasion of the Romans in AD43, to the industrial urbanisation of the 19th century, humans have shaped this island’s habitat as powerfully as it has shaped us. Combining the latest research in climate change with compelling storytelling, this is an epic story that is both urgent and timely.
