Investigating landscapes and cultural heritage within

Archaeo-landscapes are more than the sum total of their topography, geology, hydrology and a host of other environmental and anthropogenic parameters. Over and beyond the material and geo-environmental  remains, archaeo-landscapes are  the ‘setting’ of an intangible heritage in which the collective memory is continuously played out, embedded and willingly preserved.

This session on Investigating landscapes and cultural heritage within invites speakers to attempt to look at the landscape holistically and to highlight the interdependency of the tangible (the natural environment and the material culture within from crafts and other activities) and the intangible aspect thereof (our perception of it).
