Share Sharing the Field: Art in the Landscape and Landscape Archaeology

Event Details

This one-day conference will bring together artists and archaeologists, with an open invitation to those from related disciplines, to consider the inter-relationships between site-specific art in the landscape and landscape archaeology. The conference will explore the value of artistic approaches to the interpretation of archaeological landscapes - from the deep past to the contemporary past - and conversely how the practice and results of landscape archaeology inform artistic approaches to urban, rural and industrial landscapes. Ultimately the conference will explore how these two disciplines can inform each other and in so doing facilitate and advance our perception of the archaeological landscape.
