How much do we really know about the place we call 'home'?

In this sweeping, timely book, Nicholas Crane tells the story of Britain. Over the course of 12,000 years of continuous human occupation, the British landscape has been transformed form a European peninsula of glacier and tundra to an island of glittering cities and exquisite countryside. In this geographical journey through time, we discover the ancient relationship between people and place and the deep-rooted tensions between town and countryside.

From tsunamis to Roman debacles, from henge to high-rise and hamlet to metropolis, this is a book about change and adaptation.

As Britain lurches towards a more sustainable future, it is the story of our age.
