The Society’s Immediate Past President, Nicholas Crane, is giving the 55th Annual Tyneside Geographical Society Lecture in Newcastle at the end of the month.
The British landscape has been continuously occupied by humans for 12,000 years. Since the end of the Ice Age it has been transformed from a European peninsula of glacier and tundra to an island of glittering cities and exquisite countryside.
Illustrated with beautiful photography, videography, maps and two digital drone flights, Nicholas will go on a geographical journey through time, discovering the relationship between people and place, and the 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 making of the British landscape: an illustrated talk takes place on 28 March at 5.30pm at Newcastle University. This free event is open to all – find out more.
