The specific landscape perspective employed in this study of the monumental earthworks of Badeldaob considers both cultural and environmental concerns of landscape theory, embracing the view that "landscape encompasses both the conceptual and the physical". The earthworks are viewed as but one cultural unit within the history of the settled landscape at Palau. Emphasis is placed on elucidateing the contexts - social and environmental - that led to the construction of these monumental structures and these places.
