    I picked up this book to answer a question how were the broads formed I had heard peat digging , but wanted to understand better what this meant So I started flicking through searching for the information I needed, which I found, but became so captivated by the writing style and the way Brian Moss has brought together so many different strands of study to present a clear and coherent picture of the development of the Broads and the larger Broadland area not the same as the Broadland
