This set of scholarly papers, delivered at a conference held in York, is the result of a collaboration between PLACE and the Society for Landscape Studies. Topics range from a study of how landscapes have been portrayed over the years, through studies of woodlands and medieval landscapes to interdisciplinary research projects enabling whole landscapes to be reconstructed.
