Book Extract: “Landscapes matter. They provide the setting for our daily lives, as well as an essential component of our sense of identity. This book provides new perspectives on a range of cultural landscapes in Britain. It brings together the latest insights from the arts and humanities to illuminate the meaning of landscapes and bring them to life. It draws on case studies from sites managed by the National Trust to illustrate the ways in which landscapes speak to a wide variety of concerns – about beauty, belonging, the past, access to nature and people’s sense of place. Chapters include The Art of Landscape, Ancient Places, Homes and Gardens, Lost in the Woods, Open Country and Shifting Shores.”
