From the Back Cover:

Archaeologists have long given attention to landscape, especially within settlement archaeology. In recent years, however, the focus on landscape has shifted and what was once generally passive background has now assumed the foreground. This results partly from archaeologists expanding their view beyond individual sites to considering a more comprehensive distribution of human traces in and especially between specific "places of special interest".

This book offers new and diverse perspectives on the ideational qualities of past landscapes. The editors introduce several theoretical sources supporting studies of ideational landscapes and, in so doing, give definitions of key categories of landscape, as constructed, conceived, and ideational. The contributors draw on the wide range of literature on these kinds of landscape, numerous case studies and their own theoretical background and experience to provide a thematic examination of the archaeologies of landscape.

Review:

"Good insights for landscape historians and archaeologists." Landscape History

"The varied contributions and stimulating interpretations combine with a strong and thought-provoking introduction by the editors and useful concluding commentaries on sacred landscapes and everyday places and cosmologies to produce a well-structured book of unusually powerful appeal." Landscapes
