Understanding the Historical Landscape: In Its Environmental Setting
T. C. Smout
Scottish Cultural Press, 2002 - Nature - 95 pages
As concern for the countryside becomes ever more serious, and agencies are faced with conflicting objectives, this book highlights specific concerns from different perspectives--that of the archaeologist, the geographer, the countryside planner, the landowner, and the forester. It examines the efforts these differing bodies are making to understand the environment and illustrating the ways in which each can enrich the other's understanding and management of the landscape.
