“One of the strengths of Ochota’s book is the way she makes us question what we see. So what you think is a tumulus might be a moraine…it could also be a windmill base, a small castle mound…Rather humiliatingly, it could also be a modern waste mound…”
“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.”
“...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.”
“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.”
"A field guide that will open your eyes to the countryside in a way that very few books can rival."
"Hidden Histories is an accessible travelogue through time from prehistoric Britain to recent history. With the easy style of a handbook, it will help you become a Sherlock Holmes of the landscape, able to decipher clues and annoy your friends with factoids about British history… a pleasure for anyone curious about the outdoors."
