Why does the landscape look the way that it does today? How was it different in the past? What can changes in the physical environment tell us about the way people interacted with the world around them? Landscape history – the study of all aspects of the historic environment – seeks to answer these and other questions.
The BA Landscape History degree programme aims to train you in the analysis of maps, documents, aerial photographs, and landscape itself. You will explore how landscape sheds new light on many important debates in history, and learn to recognise and understand the many traces of the past which survive all around us.
Landscape history is a wide-reaching subject which takes a broader chronological view than most varieties of history. As well as using traditional historical methods, it also shares many of the approaches employed in the study of geography, archaeology, art history and historical ecology.
