From the cover: “Mr Bragg takes us first on what he calls ‘a time walk’, covering 600 million years of desert, swamp, ice-flows, and the arrival of man, in about 4000 BC, who lived peacefully in what we know as the Fells for as long as the Pharaohs in Egypt. He tells vividly of the farmers and fishermen, of the Brigantes, who survived the Roman invasion of AD 71 in their stronghold in the high Fells, of the Norsemen who gave the place its dialect and society and of the arrival of the Normans.”
