Abstract:

When William Camden's Britannia was printed in 1586, it staggered its Elizabethan readers. Nothing like it had been seen before. For the first time, the entire British Isles had been described in astonishing detail: the mountains and rivers, the history and customs, the climate and the people of each and every county. Britannia was an encyclopaedic tour, the definitive guide to Great Britain. In this three-part series, British cartographer, explorer, writer and broadcaster Nicholas Crane rediscovers this 'lost' masterpiece as, on an epic 5,000-mile hike, he battles the elements in search of Elizabethan Britain.
