レビュー

"This book is perfect for anyone who’s travelled through the countryside, scratched their head, and thought, ‘what on earth is that thing'?" - Tony Robinson

"A friendly and well-written introduction to the hidden riches of the British landscape, with clear explanations and excellent illustrations. Use it as a handy guide, when out-and-about, or read it from cover to cover at home. Either way, it’s an excellent and authoritative read." - Prof. Francis Pryor

"What a brilliant idea - I only wish I'd thought of it first! Reading the ground is so much fun - made even better by the fact it requires no kit except the human eye mark 1 - still the best tool of all, as you know. This fine tome is the perfect companion for a good old walk in the wilds. Fantastically thorough. And so much detail and careful thought, ideal for all - whether specialist or general enthusiast. I'm loving it and learning from it. First class! " - Neil Oliver

"I’ve spent over forty years wandering the British countryside, and only just found out I’ve been doing it with my eyes shut! Mary-Ann’s 'Hidden Histories' unveils the forgotten stories behind things we see everyday, and sheds light on spectacles we might otherwise stride obliviously past." - Steve Backshall

"A field guide that will open your eyes to the countryside in a way that very few books can rival."

- Tom Holland, New Statesman

“...in Hidden Histories, a definitive classic field guide on a neglected area of interest – the landscape itself – is born…  its scope is as magnificent as our countryside itself.”

- Countryfile Magazine

“A great book to keep in the car ready for all those family days out and holidays. It is packed full of great illustrations that bring the book’s text to life.”

- Four Shires

“…This fascinating spotter’s guide to Britain’s historical landscape – what to see and how to decipher it – is rammed with intriguing nuggets...You will quickly learn about the mysterious landscapes that we blunder across so blindly....Ochota’s book covers a satisfying variety of different subjects, from pathways, bridges and old houses, to hedges, churches, graveyards and field patterns left behind by medieval ploughmen…it is nuggets such as these that make this richly detailed book so attractive to read.”
 
  - Andrew Holgate, The Sunday Times

“…a fascinating guide to deciphering and understanding the British landscape.” - The Countryman

"This beautifully presented and fascinating guide will enrich any walk and while away many a rainy afternoon." - Trail Magazine

"Hidden Histories is an accessible travelogue through time from prehistoric Britain to recent history. With the easy style of a handbook, it will help you become a Sherlock Holmes of the landscape, able to decipher clues and annoy your friends with factoids about British history… a pleasure for anyone curious about the outdoors."

- Geographical

"Provides all the information you need to unlock the secret of your surroundings. Once you've read this book you'll see the landscape in a completely new light." - Outdoor Photography

" A pleasure for anyone curious about the outdoors." - Geographical Magazine

5つ星のうち5.0 What a great little book!
2018年2月16日に英国でレビュー済み
I bought this as a Birthday present for a friend, but ended up reading the whole thing myself, before wrapping it up! This is a really informative and interesting book on the history and features of our countryside, which I thoroughly enjoyed. The author has clearly put a lot of thought and effort into it, which shows throughout.

It is written in a very accessible, though knowledgeable, style and takes the reader through a (non chronological) history of our landscape, pointing out various features that can be seen when out and about and explaining where the came from and why.
From hill forts to ancients tombs, prehistoric villages to fields with ridges, and much more, the book contains around 300 lovely photographs in addition to many drawings and sketches, which really helped bring it to life for me.
The back also contains and index of the places covered in the book from all across Britain, so you can can seek out features either near you, or plan a trip around ones you specially want to visit. The book also contains grid references for many of the most significant features covered, to help you find them.

At 23x19cm, the book fits in a back pack, if you’re out and about, but is still a nice size to read and enjoy the photos, just sitting in a comfy chair with a cuppa (which is where I read it!)

Fascinating stuff.
