Walks Through Britain's History

Walks Through Britain's History

by: a team of contributors
This pocket book provides over 100 walks which explore Britain's fascinating history through the ages from prehistoric times to the present day. The book brings you the opportunity to combine two wonderful aspects of Britain. You can enjoy carefully planned walks through beautiful and varied countryside, changing in character from mellow farmland to sweeping panoramas, from wild moorland to dramatic seascapes, from small villages to historic cities. At the same time you can become immersed in the fascinating history of these isles, taken literally on a voyage of discovery.
An historical event, person or place provides the focus for each walk. The walks are organised chronologically into twelve historic periods: Early Britain, Roman Britain, Saxons and Vikings, The Normans, Medieval Britain, The Tudors, The Stuarts, the Georgian Age, The Victorian Age, the Edwardian Age, Depression and War, Modern Britain. Each section has a short introduction to the period. The walks vary from 1.5 miles to 10 miles in length and each has detailed instructions linked to an annotated full colour map making route finding easy. The walk locations cover England, Wales and southern Scotland.
