Hornsea is ordinary, no different from countless other towns and villages scattered across the face of England. Yet, at the same time, it is unique, a product of local conditions and forces, of ceaseless interactions between people and their environment over the last 10,000 years. It is this opposition that gives Hornsea meaning and character. A sense of place.
In this new book, archaeologist and historian Stephen Harrison tells Hornsea's partcular story. The result is a fascinating biography of people and landscape, from prehistory to the present day, of generation piled upon generation of human endeavour in the making of place.
