Bri­tain’s Liv­ing Past is a beau­ti­fully il­lus­trated new hard­back by An­thony Bur­ton and Rob Scott that cel­e­brates Bri­tain’s tra­di­tional cul­tures and prac­tices. The fas­ci­nat­ing twist to ev­ery tra­di­tion fea­tured is that they ex­ist to­day much as they did cen­turies ago. In­cluded in the sec­tion ‘A Mar­itime Na­tion’ is Chatham His­toric Dock­yard’s Rope Works (above), which still makes rope to­day. Pub­lished by Blooms­bury, Bri­tain’s Liv­ing Past re­tails at £27.
