About this book

Provides an overview of geomorphological process activity and landscape change in Britain over the past 1000 years.

This significant and timely volume provides a contemporary body of information on the function of geomorphological processes in landscape and environmental management in human history. Choice "I enjoyed this particular journey through time, which contains some thought-provoking (though invariably qualitative) observations on the making of the British landscape." Basil Gomez, Annals of the Association of American Geographers
