When we walk through a landscape, it may seem timeless. Certainly, when we think of people in the past, we put them in the landscape that we ourselves are seeing, moving through and working within the present. This lecture explores the environmental and social past of the River Granta at Stapleford. It will discuss how the Granta itself has changed over time and how this may have shaped how people in the past – from early prehistory to more recent times – lived, used and moved through this particular landscape.
