Description

Place and landscape are key components of our identity today, and are indexed in family stories, popular culture, folklore and literature. In the past and still today, sacred places appear to hold important answers for many. Evidence of the origins of our identity is contained within archaeological finds, historical documentation and remains of buildings, whilst clues can also be found in place names and folklore. With these themes in mind, Lancashire's Sacred Landscape provides a detailed breakdown of and practical guide to the sacred sites, church buildings, monuments and art of Lancashire through the analysis of landscape history, archaeological finds and place names. The rich tradition of local folklore and legends is also explored in this fresh approach to the history of the county.show more
