Looking Behind the View - A Landscape History of Bedfordshire Pt 2 : Brian Kerr

"During this course the proposal is to look in some detail at how people have changed the land, beginning with the early Paleolithic arrivals into this area as the glacial ice retreated and climate warmed. This course will be general, informal, and non-technical and should interest anyone who is interested in the present-day countryside of Bedfordshire. All examples will be local with hopefully one or more sessions outside the classroom. This follows on from the 5 week course in 2018 though previous attendence unnecessary."
