"By drawing on the slow erosion of places as remote as Orkney's beehive-like community at Skara Brae, created before both Stonehenge and the Pyramids, Green uses the engulfing past to warn of future upheaval ... Green's outstanding achievement in Shadowlands is an extraordinary chapter about land that has been far more recently lost — to requisition ...

In reminding us of the loss of once-thriving communities such as Dunwich and Winchelsea, Green also offers an urgent reminder of what may lie ahead as a result of climate change and rising sea levels."
