MATTHEW GREEN: Shadowlands image

Matthew Green is a historian, writer and broadcaster, who has appeared in documentaries on the BBC, ITV and Channel 4 and has written historical features for the Guardian and the Daily Telegraph. He is the founder of Unreal City Audio, which produces immersive tours of London as live events, podcasts and apps, and his first book was London: A Travel Guide Through Time.
Shadowlands: A Journey Through Lost Britain tells of a landscape scarred with haunting and romantic remains, that were once filled with life are now just spectral echoes. Peering through the cracks of history, we find Dunwich, a medieval city plunged off a Suffolk cliff by sea storms; the lost city of Trellech unearthed by moles in the Welsh Marches, and the ghostly reservoir of Capel Celyn, one of the few remaining solely Welsh-speaking villages, drowned by Liverpool City Council.
