"England's rich, often turbulent history has left a powerful legacy in its buildings and monuments, pageantry and landscape. This new, imaginative exploration of our heritage shows how it can speak of major events and everyday life, gentle evolution and dramatic change. Drawing upon both famous and lesser-known locations, the book celebrates the key themes that have shaped England's fortunes - invasion and conquest, education and religious belief, travel and trade."--BOOK JACKET

The roads to Santiago : the medieval pilgrim routes through France and Spain to Santiago de Compostela by Derry Brabbs( Book )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Brabbs traces the four main routes within France leading to Santiago de Compostella, the third most important pilgrimage destination for medieval travelers. His photographs of the journeys are breathtaking, showing the tiny towns and grand cathedrals where the pilgrims took, and still take, shelter. In many towns of France and Spain the scallop symbol of St. James can still be found at wayside inns and hostels. Brabbs has written an informative and lively text to accompany his photos. This not only gives the background of the pilgrimage sites and the purpose behind the journey, but also describes the personal reactions of one who followed the same path as thousands over the centuries. Today there are more than religious reasons for making a pilgrimage to Compostella, but, as Brabbs shows so beautifully, anyone who follows the old roads there cannot avoid being affected by the journey
Hadrian's Wall by Derry Brabbs( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hadrian's Wall extended for some 120 kilometers across the Tyne-Solway isthmus, and was built on the orders of the Emperor Hadrian in c. AD 122 to be a permanent, fixed frontier to mark the northern boundary of the Roman province of Britannia. Designated as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, it now forms the basis of a National Trail long-distance footpath." "The Wall was just one component of a complex military zone which also comprised turrets, milecastles, earthworks, roads and supporting forts. Housesteads, Chesters and Birdoswald were three such garrisons: their ruined sites, now in the care of English Heritage, have been transformed into major visitor centres with museums and other educational resources."--BOOK JACKET

Pilgrimage : the great pilgrim routes of Britain and Europe by Derry Brabbs( Book )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pilgrimage in Europe is currently thriving on a scale that simply could not have been envisaged just a few decades ago. In 1990 less than 5000 pilgrimages were recorded by the cathedral at Santiago de Compostella in northwest Spain. Today the figure is at least 200,000 a year. Derry Brabbs highly successful Roads to Santiago, published by Frances Lincoln in 2008, focused exclusively upon the routes through France and Spain to Santiago de Compostela. This new book revisits the classic French route through northern Spain to Santiago, but adds twelve other inspirational journeys across Europe. Along the Jakobsweg in Germany the familiar scallop shell symbol can be followed all the way from the Baltic coast: this book focuses on the historic Rhineland route between Cologne and Trier. Pilgrimage also features the great routes of Britain and France including St Cuthberts Way, winding through the Borders to the holy island of Lindesfarne, and the World Heritage Site of Mont-St-Michel built on the tiny island off the coast of Normandy. The most notable addition to the rejuvenated era of pilgrimage is the Via Francigena, now a very well established path through Switzerland and Italy. The Italian section begins on the bleak summit of the Great St Bernard Pass where a hospice still caters to the needs of passing pilgrims before heading down to Rome through some of Italy's most beguiling countryside interspersed with medieval hilltop towns and villages."--Publisher description
