People and Landscapes in Prehistoric North West Europe
Unquiet Lands: People and Landscapes in Prehistoric North West Europe, a joint meeting organised by the Prehistoric Society and Bournemouth
University Archaeology and Historic Environment Group. For more than a decade landscape theory has been brought to bear on the study of prehistoric communities across many parts of northwest Europe with
interesting results. It is now clear that many of today's most cherished areas of scenic countryside and coast were far from quiet in the ancient past. The aim of this meeting is to explore the results of landscape studies in terms of what we have learnt about prehistoric peoples and the worlds they created, their relationships to the natural world, the role of monuments and material culture, and the experiences people had whilst living in these lands.
This joint event will be held at Bournemouth University from 20 - 22 April. A wine reception and introduction by John Barrett of Sheffield University on Friday 20th will be followed by papers on Saturday 21st covering a range of themes associated with the study of prehistoric landscapes. An optional tour of prehistoric sites in Dorset will run on Sunday 22nd (places limited).
