Landscape and Environmental Archaeology

Landscape research at Exeter is characterised by its interdisciplinarity, methodological innovation, commitment to fieldwork, and relevance to modern day society.

Our current research covers a range of themes:

  • The origins and development of historic landscapes
  • Exploring ancient landscapes through remote sensing techniques
  • The changing patterns in the exploitation of resources
  • Human-environment relations
  • Prehistoric and early historic seafaring
  • The Wetlands of Britain
  • How social relationships and cultural values shape past perceptions and current understanding of landscapess

Many of our research projects involve active collaboration with scholars from other disciplines including geography, history, palaeoenvironmental studies, hydrogeology, and classics and ancient history.
