Alongside the powerful human urge to create borders, there seems to be an equally strong urge to make connections and transcend them. James Crawford’s The Edge of the Plain, Ben Judah’s This Is Europe, and Kapka Kassabova’s Border: A Journey to the Edge of Europe each address the psychological boundaries that divide us, and the human links we forge. Today they discuss boundaries in prose and outlook.

James will also discuss his latest book, Wild History. In this book acclaimed author and presenter James Crawford introduces many such places all over the country, from the ruins of prehistoric forts and ancient, arcane burial sites, to abandoned bothies and boathouses, and the derelict traces of old, faded industry.
