Walks through Britain's History

Project Summary

Walks through Britain's history is exactly what the book covers, from prehistoric times to 2000.

Each walk follows a particular theme, and is worth doing as a walk in its own right. It is accompanied by a story detailing the historical context.

The walks I contributed for this lavishly illustrated volume (A4 format, with separate lightweight book with maps and directions only) are:

  • Cissbury, a tale of flint Cissbury hillfort and its neolithic flint mines
  • Imperial style in the South Downs Life at Bignor Roman Villa and the Roman road of Stane Street
  • Burpham: an Anglo-Saxon settlement The building of burhs in Anglo-Saxon times,and the re-emergence of towns in England
  • The castle and priory builder at Lewes The Norman influence in Lewes
  • On Darwin at Down House The life and work of Charles Darwin, and his house in Kent where he wrote The Origin of Species
  • The Cuckoo Trail of East Sussex The emergence of the National Cycle Network
