About this book

Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Clwydian Range has a very rich archaeology. It tells of the mammoth bones left in the area's caves by Paleaeolithic hunters; of the great chain of Iron Age hillforts that crown the Range; of the bronze brooches in Romano-British burials; and from the medieval period, of motte and bailey castles and Gothic churches. The Industrial Revolution left its mark, and Gerard Manley Hopkins found inspiration here. Throughout, the photographs capture the spirit of his original `landscape plotted and pieced'.
