Chris Fitch on the wonderful places beneath us

From Saturday Morning, 11:06 am on 5 September 2020


Underground is where humans have kept our most sacred treasures and darkest secrets.

From the subterranean cities of Cappadocia to smuggling tunnels on the US-Mexico border, caves full of tiny blind dragons and a seed vault located 1300km inside the Arctic circle, there are incredible worlds beneath us.

Writer and geographer Chris Fitch explores these extraordinary places in his new book Subterranea.

Fitch's 2017 debut The Atlas of Untamed Places was nominated for a 2018 Edward Stanford Travel Writing Award, and translated into several languages.
