Over the past three decades, landscape has become an umbrella term to describe many different strands of archaeology. From the processualist study of settlement patterns to the phenomenologists̕ experience of the natural world, from human impact on past environments to the environments̕ impact on human thought, action, and interaction, the term has been used. In this volume, for the first time, over 80 archaeologists from three continents attempt a comprehensive definition of the ideas and practices of landscape archaeology, covering the theoretical and the practical, the research and conservation, and encasing the term in a global framework. As a basic reference volume for landscape archaeology, this volume will be the benchmark for decades to come. All royalties on this Handbook are donated to the World Archaeological Congress.
