In her “trilogy”, A Land, Man on Earth, and Man and the Sun, Jacquetta Hawkes expressed her ideas that man was part of nature and that story was central to human consciousness. So it is good to report that Dr Christine Finn will speak about Jacquetta Hawkes at Uncivilisation: the Dark Mountain Festival on 29 May 2010, as the event will explore just these ideas. Dr Finn’s piece is called “Strong pasts, fragile futures: Jacquetta Hawkes, eco-archaeologist, and Britain’s Rachel Carson?”.
