Description

Subterranea

Enjoy a free double-sided, laminated, caving-themed bookmark with your order

Subterranea by Chris Fitch (with Matthew Young, who produced the many fine maps) was reviewed in Descent (276). This is an extremely attractive book subtitled 'Discovering the earth's extraordinary hidden depths'; the back cover carries a quote by Nick Crane (BBC presenter): 'An original and timely odyssey into our mysterious underworld. Thrilling proof that science and imagination share the ground beneath our feet.'

The contents are in four parts: Creation (cave paintings and the like), Ancient History (archaeology and early inhabitations of underground places, Modern History (man-made structures) and Today (how the underworld is interacting with us, with such as sinkholes and tunnels). The coverage is varied, the writing engaging, the maps an example of clarity. This is a general interest book of high quality, offered here at a discount.

The one copy available is assigned to UK stock. If you require a different post destination please contact us so that stock may be moved and you can place your order. Where more than one copy is available, the copy in the best condition will be supplied to fill an order.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR EU CUSTOMERS

VAT is not charged on UK publications. Orders to the EU are posted without tax paid: you are responsible for VAT and any other charges on delivery. We will be unable to refund you in full if you refuse delivery or the charges are not paid.

Please see our FAQs relating to deliveries, and the Delivery page linked from the bottom of each page, before placing your order if time is an important element for your order.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR ALL DESCENT SUBSCRIBERS OUTSIDE THE UK

We regret that due to the volatility of Royal Mail postage charges, we have been forced to remove the option for two-year subscriptions. We have also been forced to remove the option for economy mail to the EU, given indications that Royal Mail intends to remove this service.

All international mail is now being despatched in paper wrapping using Royal Mail customs and address labels mandated by them. We also regret this means we can no longer indicate the last issue of your subscription on the mailing sheet or supply a reminder to renew with the final edition. Please track your own subscription ending or check with us at any time. Subscriptions begun since September 2021 have a comment added in your account (under the tab for the order) which records the final issue to be supplied.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR EU CUSTOMERS

On 1 July 2021 the EU removed all exemptions for tax and customs duty on low value items posted from the UK to the EU, meaning that although VAT is 0% on books and magazines in the UK, it is charged within the EU and the VAT (potentially plus a handling fee) now apply to all orders to the EU.

Ideally, the VAT should be paid at the point of posting, but doing so requires registration with an agent to handle the payments, and this is incredibly expensive and not financially viable. To be clear, all small publishers in the UK are in the same position and we are unable to post any items to the EU with VAT or other duties paid.

Ordering any item from Wild Places, including a Descent subscription, requires that you accept responsibility of paying the VAT and any other local charges on delivery.

To be clear: Wild Places will NOT cover any charges levied by your country; it is your responsibility to accept these when placing an order.

We apologise for the situation, but it is outside our control. We will maintain a link from the left-hand column on the home page with the latest updates. If you are an existing subscriber to Descent and have not replied yet to our enquiries concerning your deliveries, please make contact.

NOTE: Subscribers in Norway or Switzerland (which are outside the EU) should place your order on the Subscription International page or contact us first.
