Landscape

About

This theme encourages active participation from all researchers, including postgraduate students. It focuses on the Holocene, with research across all periods from the Mesolithic to the present.

A key approach is integrative landscape archaeology, using geographical information systems (GIS) to analyse data created by techniques including:

  • remote sensing (including geophysics and laser scanning)
  • archaeological field survey and excavation
  • geoarchaeology
  • historic characterisation
  • historic cartography and documentary studies

The research interests of academic staff in the strand include:

  • ritual landscapes
  • frontier landscapes
  • historic landscape characterisation

Members of the theme meet informally for coffee every Wednesday morning at 09.30 in the School’s Senior Common Room (first floor, Armstrong Building). The convenor is Professor Sam Turner.

McCord Centre for Landscape

Members of this theme are also researchers in the University’s McCord Centre for Landscape, which was established in 2014.

The Centre provides a focus for interdisciplinary and collaborative projects in the field of landscape in Britain and around the world.
