About this Event:

Award-winning writer Robert Macfarlane talks to The Sunday Times literary editor Andrew Holgate about the paths he trod in The Old Ways and how they led him to discover unexpected new things. Macfarlane merges natural history, cartography, geology, archaeology and literature as he follows the ancient tracks, holloways, drove roads and sea paths that criss-cross Britain. He explores the ghosts that haunt ancient paths and stories of pilgrimage, ritual, people and place.

Macfarlane won the Guardian First Book Award, the Somerset Maugham Award and the Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year Award for his first book, Mountains of the Mind. Of The Old Ways, The Sunday Times said Macfarlane laid ‘an irresistible trail for readers to follow’.
