Step into the darkness of Britain’s Shadowlands with Dr Matthew Green as your guide. Weaving tales of abandoned villages, drowned Medieval port towns, the echoing hymns of forgotten communities and the haunted ruins of ‘ghost outposts’, Shadowlands is both a restless eulogy and prescient reminder of civilisation’s inevitable decay. From the far-flung island of St. Kilda, to the ‘Medieval Manhattan’ of New Winchelsea, each chapter is an open pool of poetic analysis and storytelling. Green is a fireball of knowledge and wit, drawing the reader further into his kingdom of loss. Shadowlands is a kryptonite gem that will live long in the reader’s memory.
