'An immersive and lyrically personal journey through deep-time and modern tides' RAYNOR WINN

'Wondrous, elegant and haunting, Lost to the Sea is a fascinating alternative history of the fractured, flooded and eroded edges of Britain and Ireland' PHILIP HOARE

Medieval kingdoms. Notorious pirate towns. Drowned churches. Crocodile-infested swamps.

On a series of coastal walks, Lisa Woollett takes us on an illuminating journey, bringing to life the places where mythology and reality meet at the very edges of Britain and Ireland.

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.

Lost to the Sea is an exhilarating voyage around the ever-shifting shores of the British Isles, and a haunting ode to our profound relationship with the sea.

'A hugely enjoyable mosaic of history, myth and imagination' SARA WHEELER

'Beautifully written and researched . . . I was immediately tempted to head out in search of lost lands' WYL MENMUIR
