Nicholas Crane, RGS-IBG Immediate Past President, will give the 55th Annual Tyneside Geographical Society Lecture.
How much do we know about the place we call ‘home’? The British landscape has been continuously occupied by humans for 12,000 years, from the end of the Ice Age till the 21st century. It has been transformed from a European peninsula of glacier and tundra to an island of glittering cities and exquisite countryside.
In this geographical journey through time, we discover the ancient relationship between people and place and the deep-rooted tensions between town and countryside. As Britain lurches from an exploitative past towards a more sustainable future, this is the story of our age.
The talk is illustrated with beautiful colour photographs, maps and videos, including two digital drone flights above British landscapes.
Join Jonny as he discusses his work in un-mapped environments to support humanitarian crisis relief.
