History is never more alive than when you're walking through it. The smell of earth long-trodden by pilgrims; mountain vistas unchanged for millennia; the feel of weathered wall, built centuries before... To hike amid such echoes of the past is as close as you'll come to travelling back in time. This book will lead you on a grand tour of world events, from prehistory to the 21st century. Meandering along 500 historically resonant trails, A History of the World in 500 Walks is learned but light-footed and never pedestrian, combining inspirational and knowledgable commentary with practical detail. Starting at the very beginning, with hikes amid some of the planet's most startling geology, A History of the World in 500 Walks strolls towards and present, via the pathways of the Roman emperors, Mayan civilisations, medieval pilgrims and Second World War soldiers. In its beautifully illustrated pages, you can follow in the footsteps of Christians, convicts, communists, and conquistadores, Aboriginal trives, high-seas explorers, gold prospectors, silk traders, Buddhists, Berbers, a bard and a barmy Bavarian. The tales are as varied as the terrain they cover -- and will likely spur you to lace up your own boots.

Walking to Camelot

A Pilgrimage Through the Heart of Rural England

Category: England

Page: 272

A charming 300-mile romp through farm, field and English history, with two crazy Canadians as our guides.John Cherrington and his seventy-four year old walking companion set out one fine morning in May to traverse the only English footpath that cuts south through the rural heart of the country, a formidable path called the Macmillan Way. Cherrington's walking partner is Karl Yzerman, an irascible "bull of the woods", a full twenty years his senior and the perfect foil to the wry and self-deprecating author. Their journey begins at Boston on the Wash and takes them through areas of outstanding beauty such as the Cotswolds, Somerset, and Dorset, all the way to Chesil Beach. Their ultimate destination is Cadbury Castle, a hillfort that many archeologists believe to be the likely location of King Arthur's legendary centre of operations in the late 5th century when he--or some other prominent British warrior chieftain--made his last stand against the Saxons. Along the way the unlikely duo experiences many adventures, including a serious crime scene, a bull attack, several ghosts, a brothel, and the English themselves. On virtually every page of the book the historical merges with the magic of the footpath, with Cherrington making astute, often humorous observations on the social, cultural and culinary mores of the English, all from a very North American perspective.
