Lisa Woolett: Where the Land meets the Sea 

 

For her latest book, Lost to the Sea, Lisa Woollett set out on an exhilarating voyage around the ever-shifting shores of the British Isles, bringing to life the places where mythology and reality meet. 

From Bronze Age settlements on the Isles of Scilly and submerged prehistoric forests in Wales, to a Victorian amusement park on the Isle of Wight and castles in the air off County Clare, Lisa draws together archaeology, meetings with locals and tales from folklore to reveal how the sea has forged, shaped and often overwhelmed these landscapes and communities.
