An Anthropology of Landscape: The Extraordinary in the Ordinary

An Anthropology of Landscape: The Extraordinary in the Ordinary by Christopher Tilley
English | Feb. 1, 2017 | ISBN: 1911307444 | 349 Pages | PDF | 27 MB

The research for this book took place from 2008 to 2012. It ran in tandem with an archaeological project involving a fieldwork survey of the entire heathlands, and excavations of multiple sites during the same time period directed by Chris Tilley. It is important to acknowledge this in terms of the discussion of this being a contested landscape. After moving to the area and having decided to visit all the prehistoric cairns, Chris went walking on the heathlands with Tor, his dog. These became walks with a purpose.
