From The Prehistoric Society:
The Land, the Sea and the Sky begins the series of spring day-conferences exploring new directions in the landscapes of prehistory. Our first session is about landscape in its widest sense – both physically and conceptually – and will range from the minutiae of the soil particle to the vastness of the night sky. Presentations will consider the impact of recently developed approaches to environmental history, remote sensing, seabed modelling, largescale survey, cosmology and the synthesis and interpretation of a truly staggering dataset. The emphasis is on connectivity: connectivity in terms of archaeological method and practice and in terms of prehistoric use and perception of the world – the land, the sea and the sky.
