Summary
"The five centuries between the end of Roman Britain and the death of Alfred the Great have left few voices save a handful of chroniclers, but Britain's 'Dark Ages' can still be explored through material remnants but above all, landscapes. In the Land of Giants explores Britain's lost medieval past by walking its paths and exploring its lasting imprint on valley, hill and field. From York to Whitby, from London to Sutton Hoo, from Edinburgh to Anglesey and from Hadrian's Wall to Loch Tay, each of his ten walk narratives form parts of a wider portrait of a Britain of fort and fyrd, crypt and crannog, church and causeway, holy well and memorial stone."--Back cover
Summary
Explores the medieval past of Britain through 10 walking narratives that explore paths through valleys, hills and fields and taking note of the remnants of forts, fyrds, crypts, crannogs, churches, causeways, holy wells and memorial stones
