Lost to the Sea: An Evening with Lisa Woollett

Join us for an exciting evening of conversation with naturalist and author Lisa Woollett to celebrate the release of her latest book, Lost to the Sea.

On a series of coastal walks, Lisa Woollett takes us on an illuminating journey, bringing to life the places where mythology and reality meet at the very edges of Britain and Ireland.

From Bronze Age settlements on the Isles of Scilly and submerged prehistoric forests in Wales, to a Victorian amusement park on the Isle of Wight and castles in the air off County Clare, Lisa draws together archaeology, meetings with locals and tales from folklore to reveal how the sea has forged, shaped and often overwhelmed these landscapes and communities.

'An immersive and lyrically personal journey through deep-time and modern tides' RAYNOR WINN

'Wondrous, elegant and haunting, Lost to the Sea is a fascinating alternative history of the fractured, flooded and eroded edges of Britain and Ireland' PHILIP HOARE
