Adrian Warren and Dae Sasitorn take us on an aerial journey through time, using over 400 of their stunning photographs, with an informative text by Elizabeth Loving and David Halford, to interpret our impact on the landscape and revealing its hidden secrets.500 million years ago, Britain lay under the sea close to the Antarctic. As it was pushed northwards, volcanoes and earthquakes opened up the earth's crust; and glaciers scoured the surface of the land. When people first ventured into wilderness Britain over half a million years ago to hunt and find shelter, they discovered a rich variety of landscapes. Little by little, they learned to exploit its natural resources, cutting the forest, ploughing the land, building roads, homes, cities, and creating wealth that attracted waves of invaders, who shaped the modern Britain we know today.
