Join Historian Matthew Green as he delves into the forgotten history of Britain’s lost cities, ghost towns and vanished villages: our shadowlands.

Drowned. Buried by sand. Decimated by plague. Plunged off a cliff. Britain’s landscape is scarred with haunting and romantic remains; these shadowlands that were once filled with life are now just spectral echoes. Matthew Green will tell the forgotten history of Britain’s lost cities, ghost towns and vanished villages: our shadowlands. By exploring the lost causes and dead ends of history – places lost to natural phenomena, war and plague, economic shifts and technological progress – the precariousness of our own towns and cities, of humanity, becomes clear.
