Product description

Review

"A field guide that will open your eyes to the countryside in a way that very few books can rival."

(Tom Holland New Statesman 2016-11-18)

“...in Hidden Histories, a definitive classic field guide on a neglected area of interest – the landscape itself – is born…  its scope is as magnificent as our countryside itself.”

(Countryfile Magazine 2016-11-18)

“A great book to keep in the car ready for all those family days out and holidays. It is packed full of great illustrations that bring the book’s text to life.”

(Four Shires 2016-11-03)

“…This fascinating spotter’s guide to Britain’s historical landscape – what to see and how to decipher it – is rammed with intriguing nuggets...You will quickly learn about the mysterious landscapes that we blunder across so blindly....Ochota’s book covers a satisfying variety of different subjects, from pathways, bridges and old houses, to hedges, churches, graveyards and field patterns left behind by medieval ploughmen…it is nuggets such as these that make this richly detailed book so attractive to read.”
 
 
(Andrew Holgate The Sunday Times)

“…a fascinating guide to deciphering and understanding the British landscape.”
(The Countryman 2016-10-17)

"This beautifully presented and fascinating guide will enrich any walk and while away many a rainy afternoon."
(Trail Magazine 2016-10-24)

Review

"This book is perfect for anyone who’s travelled through the countryside, scratched their head, and thought, ‘what on earth is that thing'?"
(Tony Robinson)

"A friendly and well-written introduction to the hidden riches of the British landscape, with clear explanations and excellent illustrations. Use it as a handy guide, when out-and-about, or read it from cover to cover at home. Either way, it’s an excellent and authoritative read."
(Prof. Francis Pryor 2016-10-01)

"What a brilliant idea - I only wish I'd thought of it first! Reading the ground is so much fun - made even better by the fact it requires no kit except the human eye mark 1 - still the best tool of all, as you know. This fine tome is the perfect companion for a good old walk in the wilds. Fantastically thorough. And so much detail and careful thought, ideal for all - whether specialist or general enthusiast. I'm loving it and learning from it. First class! "
(Neil Oliver 2016-10-01)

"I’ve spent over forty years wandering the British countryside, and only just found out I’ve been doing it with my eyes shut! Mary-Ann’s 'Hidden Histories' unveils the forgotten stories behind things we see everyday, and sheds light on spectacles we might otherwise stride obliviously past."
(Steve Backshall 2016-10-01)
