Monday 25th February Grosvenor Museum, Chester: Hidden Histories An evening exploring the 'lumps and bumps' of Britain's landscape 25th February, 7.30pm, Chester Society for Landscape History
An evening lecture open to members and non-members.
I'll be revealing some of the features everyone can spot in the landscape around them, from tumuli to toll roads, hedgerows and holloways. How can you tell if a straight road is Roman, or if a lumpy field is medeival? And how can you turn a trip to the pub into a historical adventure? I'll be signing books too.
