About this book

Makes new connections between places, rivers and names in a way that will inspire people into a new awareness of their land. The gazeteer section claims to exceed all previous guidebooks of sacred Britain in its depth and range.
`Erudite (his references range from Pope and Blake to D.H.Lawrence and T.S.Eliot), articulate and lucid.' Daily Telegraph
`If Cope's forthcoming book on British Prehistoric Sites has as much impact as `Krautrocksampler', then expect the pathways to our most farflung moorland monuments to be worn deep into the trenches.' Sunday Times Magazine

'Erudite (his references range from Pope and Blake to D. H. Lawrence and T. S. Eliot), articulate and lucid, he possesses an admirable degree of self-awareness.' - The Telegraph, September 1995

Julian Cope shot to fame with his band 'The Teardrop Explodes' at the height of the Post-Punk renaissance. Since the Teardrops he has recorded over 20 albums and known as the Arch Drude, is truly a cult hero. His books, The Modern Antiquarian and the two-part autobiography Head On and Repossessed, are bestsellers and have secured him a permanent place in our culture's history.
