Essential Guide to Beachcombing and the Strandline

Steve Trewhella & Julie Hatcher

Humans have been drawn to beaches since the dawn of time, both to gather resources, but also to collect peculiar objects that have become the stuff of myth and folklore it is our inherent hunter-gatherer instinct. No matter if you are an experienced beachcomber, a casual visitor or an enthusiastic naturalist, this book will answer your questions and satisfy your curiosity about the treasures found cast up on the beach strandline, whether it is a beautiful seashell, a spent eggcase, a frond of seaweed or an exotic ocean voyager. Every find has its own story to tell and this book will answer the questions that arise with every beachcombing discovery - what is it and where did it come from? User-friendly photos and descriptions are accompanied by information about the natural history of the animals and plants you encounter. Even man-made debris can offer a revealing introduction to the inner workings of the ocean and illustrate how items thrown away in Africa or America can wash up on British beaches. 304 pages.
