Landscape & Environmental Archaeology: Advanced History, Theory and Methodology
Autumn Term 2021
About the course
This course introduces the theories and methods that underpin Landscape and Environmental Archaeology in order to generating a broader knowledge and understanding of the methods and techniques employed in both research areas. This is supplemented with empirical problem-based case studies that combine the methodological and theoretical aspects of Landscape and Environmental studies so that students gain a clear understanding of the interdisciplinary approach of both disciplines. Despite significant synergies, the disciplines have distinct developmental pathways in terms of their respective histories and their theoretical foundations. The various roles of Landscape and Environmental studies are considered, and the specific ways in which each subject area link into archaeology, archaeological theory and the commercial sectors are assessed.
