The impact of human life on the English landscape is evident all around us. The influences of the generations that have lived in and off this place since the end of the Ice Age have combined with dynamic natural processes to create the landscape we see today. That landscape evokes intense passion and profound emotion. Those of us who live in England may cherish the unchanging atmosphere of a familiar place, but we also make impossible demands of it. Only in the last 50 years or so have we started to recognise its fragility and are at last beginning to realise that a deeper understanding is the key to a thoughtful approach to its future. This was the inspiration behind this new series. The eight regional studies offer an insight into how the landscape of England came to be the way it is, looking at natural processes including geology and vegetation, settlement history from prehistory to the present day, communications and industrial developments, and the cultural landscapes - the art and literature that have been inspired by the qualities of landscape particular to each region. The compelling narratives are told by the country's leading authorities in landscape studies, and are accompanied by stunning illustrations, including hundreds of specially-commissioned ground and air photography, complemented by maps, graphics and archive images. By offering the reader an interpretation of the language of landscape, and an insight into the way people make places, this series will enable us to experience that most neglected of human emotions: a sense of place.
