Europe's Cultural Landscape: Archaeologists and the management of change

The second Europae Archaeologiae Consilium Symposium (March 2001, Strasbourg) was devoted to landscape management in recognition of the new European Landscape Convention (Council of Europe, 2002). Arising from the Symposium, this book highlights the important archaeological and historical depth of the European landscape sometimes overlooked by decision-makers in comparison to ecological and aesthetic aspects. It describes opportunities and obstacles that affect the landscape's sustainable management, and shows how heritage managers can support the Convention by helping to understand and promote landscape as a core element of Europe's common inheritance. A key messages is that archaeologists need to take account of the growing democratic interest in the landscape, and to work alongside other disciplines in pan-European in landscape projects.

The volume is published with abstracts in English, French, and German
