In this episode of Geography Now, archaeologist Mary-Ann Ochota talks to us about the unearthed mysteries of the past, taking us on a geographical journey around Britain.
Mary-Ann Ochota is a writer and broadcaster, as well as a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG). She is well known for her TV appearances in archaeology programmes, as well as her book Hidden Histories: A Spotter's Guide to the British Landscape, which invites readers to interpret the features you can spot on walks and hikes in the countryside.
In this podcast episode, Mary-Ann talks to us about her new book, Secret Britain: Unearthing Our Mysterious Past, which is a fascinating geographical tour of some of the most amazing archaeological sites and arefacts found across Britain. She discusses some of her favourite sites featured in the book, how tourism affects these sites, and how we can be more appreciative of the wonderful insights in to the past that we can see close to home.
Geography now is a new podcast series from the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG). In this series, we’ll be talking to geographers about the work that they’re doing, topics they’re passionate about, and opinions they have about the world around us.
At a time when it is impossible to host speakers at the Society, we are committed to creating content that can be accessed online, and are excited to feature individuals who would have spoken at our events around the UK.
