Notes:
Drowned. Buried by sand. Decimated by plague. Plunged off a cliff. This is the forgotten history of Britain's lost cities, ghost towns, & vanished villages. From a submerged Neolithic settlement to an abandoned Black Death hamlet, a Norfolk village requisitioned in wartime to a Welsh town sunk in a reservoir, these are Britain's shadowlands. Matthew Green excavates these lost settlements, telling the extraordinary tales of their demise. We experience life before, during, & after oblivion, meeting the humans who lived & died in these unique places, & explore the lingering remains. Whether evoking the Atlantis myth or Romantic ruins, an ancient Roman metropolis or the modern coastline, 'Shadowlands' peers through the cracks of history at Britain's secret landscape.
