The countryside is almost sacred to many Britons. There is a depth of feeling about rural places, the moors and lochs, valleys and mountains. Yet the British countryside, so integral to our national identity, is rarely seen as having anything to do with British colonialism.

In Our Island Stories, historian Corinne Fowler brings rural life and colonial rule together. Join Corinne to explore how local meets global history, and how telling the whole story can only deepen Britons’ relationship with their beloved landscape.
