About the Event

Join Historian Matthew Green at End of the Road Festival to hear him discuss his critically acclaimed new book Shadowlands: A Journey Through Lost Britain.

From an Orkney settlement buried in sand five thousand years ago to a medieval city mouldering beneath the waves of the North Sea, Britain’s landscape is scarred with the haunting and romantic remains; these shadowlands that were once filled with life are now just spectral echoes.

Peering through the cracks of history, we find Dunwich, a medieval city plunged off a Suffolk cliff by sea storms; the lost city of Trellech unearthed by moles in the Welsh Marches; and the ghostly reservoir that is Capel Celyn, one of the few remaining solely Welsh-speaking villages, drowned by Liverpool City Council.
