24 varied walks in and around the Lake District, visiting sites and monuments from the Neolithic and Bronze Ages, many following the ancient trackways which link them. Visit many largely unknown sites: explore and discover something about the lives of our ancestors who built these sites. Gain insight into the natural history of the area: birds, flowers and landsape that may have been just as familiar to our ancestors. Each walk is outlined in detail and is accompanied by graphic descriptions which help to recreate an image of the ancient landscape from remaining clues. Most of the walking is away from the most popular tourist areas of the Lake District. Excellent hand drawn sketches by the author accompany the text, making this an attractive as well as informative read.
