Description

Britain’s landscape is scarred with haunting and romantic remains; these shadowlands that were once filled with life are now just spectral echoes. In Shadowlands historian Matthew Green tells the extraordinary stories of how these places met their fate and probes the disappearances to explain why Britain looks the way it does today.

By exploring the lost causes and dead ends of history – places lost to natural phenomena, war and plague, economic shifts and technological progress – the precariousness of our own towns and cities, of humanity, becomes clear. Shadowlands is a deeply evocative and dazzlingly original account of Britain’s past.

Author and filmmaker Adam Scovell joins Matthew Green in conversation. Adam Scovell is the author of Nettles and has been described by Robert Macfarlane as ‘One of the most interesting and original young British writers about landscape, culture and people that I know.’
