Preface to the second edition The Hidden Landscape is seventeen years old in 2010. Fortunately, my approach to understanding the landscape and history of Britain still remains appropriate today. After all, the rocks do not change, and geological time is indifferent to mere decades. I have been encouraged by letters from readers who have found that an understanding of the geological underpinning of our landscape has added to their appreciation of the countryside. Indeed, a few of those who read this book have been inspired to undertake formal study of geology.

So our human chronology domesticates time. My trilobite was invested with the mystery of time 舑 it was the baton handed to me, at last, from the Silurian. Even if I could only understand time as if in a cartoon, I could picture the extraordinary chain that linked me by way of my talisman with the period before the first four-legged creatures. Surely such a messenger should bring momentous news: the arrival of the messenger was itself momentous! It came as a spyglass to see back into the past, as a means to see this little piece of Wales near the gasworks in Haverfordwest as it was 400 million years ago.
