From pathways, bridges and old houses, to hedges, churches, graveyards and field patterns left behind by medieval ploughmen, Mary-Ann Ochota will help decipher the story of our environment through the features we see around us and will arm the amateur explorer with the crucial information needed to ‘read’ the landscape and spot the human activities that have shaped our green and pleasant land.
MONDAY 22nd - SUNDAY 28th JUNE 2020
SEE HISTORY. HEAR HISTORY. FEEL HISTORY. #AMAZINGHISTORY
