    This book is far more about Francis Pryor than it is about landscape or history. The rambling introduction about Darwin's home and the author's family connection sadly set the tone for the rest of the book, in which Pryor reminisces about some of his favourite places with occasional in...

    I don?t thinking this book had a fair reading from me having followed on from the beautiful Old Way by Robert Macfarlane...first it isn?t 240 pages...second the narrative didn?t flow for me. But I did learn a bit about parts of the UK landscape... ...

    This book is a personal take on various archaeological and historic sites that have impressed the author. The chapters are usually very short, and it almost has the feel of a printed blog. The observations he makes are very interesting and I have added several places to my 'must see' l...

    24 small vignettes. This is slight, without the depth I have come to expect from Pryor. It was interesting enough and quick to read - good to dip into. But I was left disappointed; there was very little about hidden landscapes to my mind and not enough here that was new. ...

    Francis Pryor has a very readable style of writing immediately arousing ones interest and wanting to find out more. His enthusiam for his subject is infectious and after reading about the places he describes in the book interested me enough to want and go and visit some of them which I...

    A couple of pages of the author?s own experience and thoughts on paces of significant archaeological from pre history to present day . Enjoyable easy read. ...

    I don?t thinking this book had a fair reading from me having followed on from the beautiful Old Way by Robert Macfarlane...first it isn?t 240 pages...second the narrative didn?t flow for me. But I did learn a bit about parts of the UK landscape... ...

    This book is a personal take on various archaeological and historic sites that have impressed the author. The chapters are usually very short, and it almost has the feel of a printed blog. The observations he makes are very interesting and I have added several places to my 'must see' l...

    24 small vignettes. This is slight, without the depth I have come to expect from Pryor. It was interesting enough and quick to read - good to dip into. But I was left disappointed; there was very little about hidden landscapes to my mind and not enough here that was new. ...

    Francis Pryor has a very readable style of writing immediately arousing ones interest and wanting to find out more. His enthusiam for his subject is infectious and after reading about the places he describes in the book interested me enough to want and go and visit some of them which I...

    A couple of pages of the author?s own experience and thoughts on paces of significant archaeological from pre history to present day . Enjoyable easy read. ...

    A couple of pages of the author?s own experience and thoughts on paces of significant archaeological from pre history to present day . Enjoyable easy read. ...
