About the Author
Brian Kerr has lived in Bedfordshire for around 25 years following a career working overseas, mostly in Africa. Trained as a soil scientist he has applied his knowledge of the environment to unravelling the landscape history of Bedfordshire and in his book, An Assuming County: The Making of the Bedfordshire Countryside, published in 2014, he traces the history of one English county in a way which is accessible to the non scientist. His book is a readable account of the geology, and landscape for walkers, those interested in nature conservation, planners, and the general public with an interest in the countryside. He continues to work on soil and agricultural applications and has recently been engaged in projects in the UK, Ireland, Rwanda, and Tanzania. He presently holds a post as a Visiting Fellow at Cranfield University in Bedfordshire, UK.
An Assuming County: The Making of the Bedfordshire Countryside by Brian Kerr will be published by Eventispress in November 2014
