Shadow Sites: Photography, Archaeology, and the British Landscape, 1927-1955

Synopsis

In mid-twentieth-century Britain, an archaeological vision of the British landscape reassured and enchanted a number of writers, artists, photographers, and film-makers. From John Piper, Eric Ravilious and Shell guide books, to photographs of bomb damage, aerial archaeology, andThe Wizard ofOz, Kitty Hauser delves into these evocative interpretations and looks at how they affected the way the landscape was seen.
