Synopsis

Catalog Description

Students in this course will have the opportunity to explore the complex nature of cultural landscapes first-hand and in depth. Using the extraordinarily rich historic resources of Yorkshire and Northeast England as a text, students will critically consider the different theories underlying the concepts of cultural landscapes and of landscape preservation, as well as gain experience in the methods of identifying, recording, preserving, and interpreting a range of landscape types: vernacular, designed, industrial, sectarian, urban, agrarian, military, and maritime.
