by W.G. Hoskins

Classic study of how the English built their landscape.

The Making of the English Landscape

W.G. Hoskins's The Making of the English Landscape is rightly regarded as a classic. He describes how the English landscape as we see it today was determined by, and is a record of, our long and complex history. It's a fascinating read.

If I have one complaint, it is that, on the whole, Hoskins places far more emphasis on southern England than elsewhere. Even so, the book is highly recommended.
