Landscape as Heritage or Heritage as Landscape?

Landscape is not just a category of heritage, it is the world ‘as perceived by people’. It offers a way of seeing that connects people to place, contains social relationships and helps us understand and live with environmental change. CHeriScape will uncover the connections between landscape and heritage in both research and policy.

If there is a single field within the sphere of cultural heritage in which joint action is both particularly required and likely to be of widest value, it is probably this interface with the landscape and with the landscape idea, and with its encapsulation of history and identity, people and place and with its promise of stronger, democratically-derived and better informed polices for planning European futures.
