Award-winning poet Kathleen Jamie's essays reflect on time, memory and our connections to the past. Read by Maureen Beattie. Abridged by Linda Cracknell

Beneath the broad Alaskan sky, long-buried artefacts spill from the thawing tundra. In the eroding sand dunes of a Scottish island, preserved Neolithic hearths and homes are uncovered by the wind. And in a grandmother’s tenement flat, memories surface of a long-ago mining accident and a mother who was kind.

Award-winning poet Kathleen Jamie's essays reflect on time, memory and our connections to the past.
