The Making of the British Landscape by Nicholas Crane – an illustrated talk

In association with Norfolk Wildlife Trust

How much do we know about the place we call ‘home’? The British landscape has been continuously occupied by humans for 12,000 years, from the end of the Ice Age till the twenty-first century.

It has been transformed from 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.

As Britain lurches from an exploitative past towards a more sustainable future, this is the story of our age.

The talk is illustrated with beautiful colour photographs, maps and videos, including two digital drone flights above British landscapes.

Nicholas Crane is a writer and presenter, known for his work on BBC television, including Coast, Map Man, and Great British Journeys.
