GRAHAM Anthony shares his burning passion for the fascination and the beauty of Fenland as an important segment of English Heritage.

He chronicles the great events that have shaped this unique region of the country.

Starting with the Romans, Anthony traces the arrival of Christianity and Hereward's resistance to the Norman Conquest. The arrival of the railways and a steady stream of immigrants resulted in Fenland becoming less isolated and social changes made their impact. Finally, the book discusses today's issues such as conservation and global warming. This 46-page easily readable paper-back will educate, entertain and inform and it is full of colourful photographs that show Fenland from interesting and unusual angles.
