This book presents a series of aerial photographs from all over Northumberland, taken by an author who is intimately connected with all the sites on the ground. Stan Beckensall has written about these sites, excavated some of them and photographed them all. To begin with, the photographs cover a specific archaeological excavation over a period of four years, then set this into its wider context in order to show the value of aerial photography. Others cover selected places on the coast, hills and scarplands, towns, villages, monuments, fortifications, church sites, industries, land use, water, estates and deserted villages. Many of these are famous on the tourist maps, but others are less well-known. All are accompanied by perceptive observations on what can be seen in the images and provide a fascinating new perspective on this area.
