Landscape

The Institute is unmatched in its geographic spread and range of approaches to landscape archaeology — its staff undertake research into the management of cultural landscapes, architecture and the landscape, the symbolic significances of places, the social use of space, environmental change and long-term change in the human occupation of space, funerary landscapes, ideational landscapes, experiential landscapes, political landscapes - of governance, conflict and diaspora. We engage in the broadest spectrum of methods for studying prehistoric and historic landscapes including palaeoenvironmental studies, Global Information Systems, large-scale field survey/excvation, phenomenology and anthropological studies. Our multi-period field projects include the study of whole islands – Easter Island, Greek islands, and major regional surveys in Iraq, Turkmenistan, Turkey, southern Italy, as well as period specific studies including the Bronze Age Knossos, and British medieval landscapes.
