DEEP TIME -released

We're delighted to release 'Deep Time' volume 1, the anthology of poetry inspired by Robert Macfarlane's prize-winning book 'Underland' (2019).

This work was released on July 17th. A copy was burned as an offering to the elements and to the deep past outside Paviland Cave, Gower. A second copy was sealed and buried in Paviland Cave, the site of the oldest known burial in Europe, 33,000 years ago.

Within hours, the anthology reached no 1 on the Amazon UK 'poetry anthology' chart and was no. 65 in America.
