The aerial photographs selected for this book tell the visual story of the Cambridgeshire landscape from prehistoric times to the end of the 20th century. Human activity and occupation over the course of 6000 years have left indelible marks on the countryside which are clearly visible from the air. Stone Age tracks and earthworks, Iron Age camps and medieval manor houses, modern buildings and sprawling towns can all been seen in book. The volume begins with the traces of the ditches and barrows made by the earliest inhabitants and takes readers through Roman and Saxon times to the Middle Ages, and on to the visible remains of the 16th and 17th centuries. The impact of the Industrial Revolution can be seen clearly, as can the rapid developments of the 19th century. The final chapters show the motorways, housing estates, city centres and golf courses of the 20th century.
