The second CHeriScape conference took place in Amersfoort (NL) from November 5 to November 7 2014. The conference theme was ‘Landscape as Heritage in science’. Through four separate sessions – Theory & Techniques, Collaboration & Inter/Transdisciplinarity, Past-Present & Future and Applying Results, societal and political impact – participants explored the role and value of science and research in providing the knowledge, evidence and tools needed to achieve the objective for heritage to make a difference. Each session was opened by longer keynote presentations from Thomas Meier, Esther Jansma, Tracy Metz and Jan Kolen, followed in each session by three other speakers and structured by active de- bates involving all participants on key issues around the session theme. On the first day a special poster session also took place, whilst day two was organised in cooperation with the Dutch Network of Historical Landscape, including three excursions into the Dutch landscape for all participants, and members of this network. Amersfoort presentations are available on the CheriScape website.
