Not So Barren or Uncultivated: British Travellers in Finland 1760–1830

266 pages3 hours


Part anthology, part history, Not So Barren or Uncultivated brings to life these forgotten journeys and gives a picture of Finland at a time when it was little known to the outside world. It also presents the familiar figure of the Englishman Abroad in very unfamiliar terms. Lurcock’s book is informative, affectionate, and full of surprising and entertaining episodes.‘This fascinating survey of the British in Finland' – Paul Binding, Times Literary Supplement
