The Society for Landscape Studies

The Society for Landscape Studies was founded in 1979 with the aim of advancing public education by promoting the study of the landscape in all its aspects. In achievement of this aim the Society fosters an interest in research and fieldwork; publishes, from time to time, the findings of the Society and other material relevant to the understanding of landscape evolution, particularly through its respected journal Landscape History; and holds conferences, seminars and field meetings.


Landscape History is the international refereed journal of the Society for Landscape Studies. It offers a common meeting-ground for all concerned with the material and cultural evaluation of human use of the land. The ultimate intention is to secure a more penetrating comprehension of landscape evolution and an overall narrative account of landscape prehistory and history, together with an understanding of how this has influenced, and may usefully guide, the management of the present-day landscape.


The Society for Landscape Studies is a Registered Charity No. 278393
