The common feature of landscape archaeology is its diversity of method, field location, disciplinary influences and contemporary voices. The contributors to this volume take advantage of these many strands to investigate landscape archaeology in its multiple forms, focusing primarily on the link to heritage, the impact on our understanding of temporality, and the situated theory that arises out of landscape studies. Using examples from New York to Northern Ireland and from Africa to the Argolid, these pieces capture the human significance of material objects in support of a more comprehensive, nuanced archaeology.
