A Shadow Above: The Fall and Rise of the Raven

Joe Shute

Available from 8 February 2018. For centuries, the Raven, Corvus corax, has stalked us in life and in death. Excavations of Bronze Age settlements in Britain have revealed Raven bones mingled with human remains. The Viking and Norman warriors that stormed these shores did so sporting Ravens on their shields and banners. By the 15th century the service the birds provided scavenging and picking clean bodies on the streets of British cities led to their protection, under the first-ever piece of nature conservation legislation.

Joe Shute's book chronicles the return of the Raven, and the people who have made that comeback possible. In it, he travels to every corner of the UK, meeting those who have spent the past ten years recording every sound and sighting, and showing why these birds reflect and provoke our innermost feelings. 288 pages.
