FENS: DISCOVERING ENGLAND'S ANCIENT DEPTHS, THE

Synopsis

The Fens is Britain's most distinctive, complex, man-made and least understood landscape. Francis Pryor has lived in the Fen Country for more than 40 years and loves its levels and drains, its soaring churches and magnificent medieval buildings. Here he counterpoints the history of the Fenland landscape and its transformation, with the story of his own discovery of it as an archaeologist.
