SPECIAL PODCAST SERIES FOR THAMES AND HUDSON
In this special podcast trilogy, archaeologist and Thames & Hudson author David Miles takes us on an immersive tour of the cromlechs and tombs near his home in France, to explore three themes from the past that shape the preoccupations of our present.
Land, Sky, and Home reflect David Miles’s deep knowledge of archaeology and the natural world. Recorded in different seasons of the year, all three episodes are suffused with birdsong and sounds from the landscapes of the Cévennes.
In Land, David investigates a stone circle, and meets a stonemason, to reflect on how prehistoric land clearances relate to anxieties about environmental degradation today.
In Sky, David encounters a shepherd and a tomb to explore the impact of the heavens on prehistoric social arrangements—and how our modern relationship with the sky needs mending.
Finally, in Home, David visits the ruins of a Copper Age village to examine how our idea of home emerged.
Land is available now, with the next episodes to follow throughout this Spring.
