Nature. Science. Nonfiction. The Secret History of Here is the story of a single place, a farm in the Scottish Borders. The site on which Alistair Moffat's farm now stands has been occupied since pre-historic times. The fields have turned up ancient arrow heads, stone spindles, silver pennies and a stone carved with the rune-like letters of Ogham. Walking this landscape you can feel the presence and see the marks of those who lived here before. But it is also the story of everywhere. In uncovering the history of one piece of land, Moffat shows how history is all around us, if only we have the eyes to see it. Under our feet, carved into the landscape, in the layout of paths and roads, in the stories we pass down, our history leaves its trace on the land. Taking the form of a journal of a year, The Secret History of Here is a walk through the centuries as much as the seasons. We hear the echo of battles long since fought, of lives lived quietly or scandalously, of armies, of kings, of the common folk who mostly inhabited this land, and a little of those that live here now.… (mais)

I thank my friend, David Grebow, for recognizing that I would have enjoyed this book. At first, I wasn't sure if he knew me well enough or not and I just dipped into it from time to time. But he was right. As I progressed through it, I got more and more enthralled. I've finished it and I really liked it. I spent a year of my naval training in Rosyth, just across the Firth of Forth from Edinburgh and, as a member of the school's marching band, I visited much of the border country that the author describes so it meant something to me from that aspect too.
A year in the life of the the author at his property in the Borders is interlaced with prognostications of "the past" supported by buried metal 'finds', stones and land shapes. Fascinating. ( )
