Landscapes Through The Lens

Matthew Abicht, David Cowley, Robin Standring

Oxbow Books



This volume presents the rich, but under-utilised and in parts inaccessible, archival historic aerial imagery, traditional photographs and those captured from satellites, for the exploration and management of cultural heritage. An unparalleled resource, much of it from the 1940s, for archaeologists and all with an interest in landscapes, images spanning the second half of the 20th century provide an unrivalled means of documenting and understanding change and informing the study of the past. Case studies, written by leading experts in their fields, illustrate the applications of this imagery across a wide range of heritage issues, from prehistoric cultivation and settlement patterns, to the impact of recent landscape change. Contemporary environmental and land use issues are also dealt with, in a volume that will be of interest to archaeologists, historians, geographers and those in related disciplines. David C Cowley, an archaeologist who has published extensively on aspects of aerial survey and photography, manages the RCAHMS aerial survey programme and is a former Chairman of the Aerial Archaeology Research Group.
