Landscape Encyclopaedia : A Reference to the Historic Landscape Paperback / softback


Walking through the British countryside often leaves you with numerous questions and no means of finding the answers in one, readily accessible place.

This new encyclopedia by Richard Muir contains almost 1,000 entries which provide explanations of terms, features and concepts connected with the history and archaeology of the landscape.

Short definitions and descriptions are joined by longer discussions of themes, concepts and approaches such as the origins of the village green, the parish, milestones, and the meaning of words Dalloch, souterrain and watergate.

A useful aid for those investigating the landscape and a handy reference for those who seek a more informed landscape experience.
