BBC Coast presenter and geographer on ‘The Making of the British Landscape’
Around 9700 BC Britain became a little warmer, and that’s where Nicholas Crane’s story begins. A tale of stops and starts – devastating at times, uplifting at others. ‘When the Roman emperor Claudius invaded Britain in AD 43, he came with an army of psychopathic builders and the landscape was soon altered beyond recognition. And then the climate changed once more … to care about a place, you must know its story’. Nicholas Crane gives us that story.
