Day School: History Everywhere

Ref: C2226916

Following the devastation of the Black Death, a series of changes in town and country spread across Britain from south to north and east to west, fundamentally restructuring social relations, work, politics and worship. The landscape preserves the traces of every historical chapter in the lay-out of towns and villages, castles and cathedrals, fields, parks and woods.
