" As a group, the articles in Envisioning Landscape
illustrate the opportunities and challenges of a landscape approach in archaeology. Any discussion of the past at this broad scale involves numerous audiences and, by extension, important negotiations in the present. "
- Gerald A. Oetelaar, Canadian Journal of Archaeology
"Envisioning Landscape offers a range of perspectives that can feed into thinking through the process of doing archaeology and that cause us to rethink those categories — of site, of object, and of landscape — that we habitually apply."
- Dr. John Carman, Conservation and Management of Archaeological Sites
" These rich and diverse papers examine landscape in archaeology from a variety of perspectives and in many different parts of the world. They include both valuable reviews of the history of landscape studies and thoughtful suggestions for directions for future research, especially through connections between landscape and time, identity, and politics. Envisioning Landscape
will be of great interest to archaeologists, historians and geographers, and others concerned with the changing relationships between humans and the world they live in – past, present, and future. "
- Peter S. Wells, Department of Anthropology, University of Minnesota
"This new volume in the One World Archaeology series is a significant addition to the field of landscape archaeology. Case studies and sites range from the icon (Historic Annapolis, the Tsodilo Hills) to the new and challenging (the Maze Prison, Northern Island). Its signal contribution lies in engaging with and interrogating formulations of landscape, even as it clears a space for exciting new approaches. This should be considered an essential work for library collections and university reading lists."
