NICHOLAS CRANE
The Making of the British Landscape.
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.
Nicholas Crane is an award-winning
writer, President of the Royal Geographical
Society and presenter of the BBC’s hugely
popular
Coast
series.
Jennifer Cox is a
journalist specialising in
books, travel and food.
She writes for The Times,

on Sunday.
