    A Journey Through Landscapes, Sanctuaries and Sacred Places
    For thousands of years, our ancestors held a close connection with the landscapes they lived in. They imbued it with meaning: stone monuments, sacred groves, places of pilgrimage. In our modern world we have to a large extent lost that enchantment and intimate knowledge of place.<br/><br/>James Canton takes us on a journey through England seeking to see through more ancient eyes, to understand what landscape meant to those that came before us. We visit stone circles, the West Kennet long barrow, a Crusader round church and sites of religious visions. We meet the Dagenham Idol and the intricately carved Lion Man figure. We find artefacts buried in farmers' fields. There is history and meaning encoded into the lands and places we live in, if only we take the time to look.<br/><br/>Our natural world has never been under more threat. If we relocate our sense of wonder, veneration and awe in the landscapes around us, we might just be better at saving it.<br/><br/>'A vivid exploration to the hearth-heart of the sacred places of our past - brimming with warmth and gentleness.' -Keggie Carew<br/><br/>'Canton's gift for vivid description makes this journey - this excavation of place and purpose - a captivating and ultimately anchoring one. Grounded is a joyful peer beneath the surface to where our own roots channel those of ancient time: it has brought new meaning to my everyday rituals of walking and seeing.' -Matt Collins, author of Forest: Walking Among Trees
