For the first one, Daniel H. Still life painting atelier: an introduction to oil painting. In the final chapter though it does come alive but this is largely because he has given up the lecture and allows himself full reign to indulge his sermon - namely the despoilment of the English countryside since its perfection with the Enclosure Acts. Since he grew up in the latter and worked in the former as a lecturer at the University of Leicester that is perhaps understandable - particularly in light of the incredible amount of work that a larger amount of primary data would have entailed.

England of the Nissen-hutthe " pre-fab ", and the electric fence, of the high barbed wire around some unmentionable devilment; England of the arterial by-pass, treeless and stinking of diesel oil, murderous with lorries; England of the bombing-range wherever there was once silence … Barbaric England of the scientists, the military men, and the politicians; let us turn away and contemplate the past before all is lost to the vandals. Crawford 's Archaeology in the Field, stressed we had to read the landscape using research to reveal its cultural value.

Our understanding is not just wider though but deeper - in the sense that we have a greater understanding of the development of landscapes through time than was possible when Hoskins wrote. Under Henry II perhaps a third of the country was royal forest. Another burst of town planning came with the spa towns in the late 18th century, and of new industrial towns like Middlesbrough and Barrow-in-Furness in the mid 19th century. In 'The Clearing of the Woodlands', Hoskins argues that before the 15th century England must have looked like one great forest, but most of the woods were cleared for arable or pasture in the 12th and 13th centuries. Roads, Canals, and Railways[ edit ] The canal basin at Stourportthe only town in England to be created by canalsaccording to Hoskins Hoskins describes roads and trackways from the Iron Age like the Jurassic Way across the midlands, near his Oxfordshire home and Roman times like Akeman Street in the same area.
