You’re driving past a lumpy field and wonder what made the lumps and bumps; you walk between two lines of grand trees but don’t know why they were planted; you pass a brown heritage sign but don’t know what a ‘tumulus’ is... Hidden Histories will teach you how to read the landscape around you and see into the past: Roman Britain, the arrival of Christianity, the Highland Clearances, and much more. Each chapter contains a checklist of key features, and tells you where to find the best examples in Britain.

'A definitive classic field guide... Its scope is as magnificent as our countryside itself.'BBC Countryfile Magazine

'This book is perfect for anyone who’s travelled through the countryside, scratched their head, and thought, ‘what on earth is that thing?' Tony Robinson
