  • Description or summary of the book: Roads shape our society and are shaped by it: they are a slice through history, a slice through landscape, and a slice through life. They are the most basic part of the transport network, used daily by most people, but their fascinating stories are largely ignored. This is the tale of one such road - the Holyhead Road - that runs through the heart and history of Britain. This road dates back to Roman times and has a rich history of battles and pilgrimages, trade and exploration. In the last two centuries its importance has waxed and waned, from the great days of the coaching trade, through decline with the advent of the railways, to coming back to life with the invention of the motor car. This Ancient Road is a truly fascinating journey through time. Nostalgic, informative, quirky and charming Andrew Hudson brings history to life in this marvellous debut.
