Wherever you go in Britain there’s history woven into the landscape around you – in the shape of a field, the wall of a cottage, a standing stone or churchyard, even in the grass under your feet. And there are thousands of sites are waiting to reveal their secrets.

In this talk, Mary-Ann will share some of the clues and details to look for in order to ‘read’ the land and become a landscape detective. Spot history hidden in plain sight, from chambered tombs to churches, tumuli to turnpikes, ancient yews to ridge and furrow.

Just one of the programme of talks taking place during the Festival of Archaeology 13 and 14 July 2019.
