Mark Lorenzo is an archaeology graduate with an M.A in Cultural heritage living in Valencia, Spain. Since he graduated he’s worked within archaeology, teaching and carpet moving.
Recently whenever he’s back in Tamworth, the town he grew up in and passed those formative years, he loves to explore the landscape’s stories within walking distance from his parents house. This blog is a result of a number of ingredients numbered below:
1. His inquisitive nature into overlooked histories and pasts. Tamworth and the surrounding area is a prime example of an area in the UK which is overlooked in many areas, one in which is it’s history. That makes it exciting!
2. His influences from post-procesual archaeology, pschycogeographers, and books such as William Heat-Moons wonderful Prairyerth
3. A very, very cheap form of tourism, all you need is a camera, internet connection and time which goes with the next reason
4. This summer he’s got time
5. No car, having no car means you are obliged to explore within walking distance and take a closer look at things nearby
6. Its LANDSCAPE VOYEURISM. It’s not more special than other areas, it’s just a way of looking at an area and hopefully shows that it can be just as interesting in it’s own way as a far-flung location

Walking two or three hours will carry me to as strange a country as I expect ever to see. A single farmhouse which I had not seen before is sometimes as good as the dominions of the king of Dahomey.
