I’m a chartered geographer and my main interest is in landscape interpretation or rather historical geography; the study of past landscapes. For example there’s a place I know in Yorkshire where from a particular vantage point you can see evidence of Brittonic settlement,Roman occupation, the Norman invasion, monastic ironworking and on to the industrial revolution. Right now I’m make notes for the book I’m working on. I’ve come up with a ‘formula’ for explaining what makes a land ‘legendary’. I know it seems like a throwaway term but there are key elements which can be identified.
