Making Sense of an Historic Landscape

This chapter discusses how the marked regional variation in landscape character described in the preceding chapters came to be perpetuated throughout the historic period. It shows that for several millennia, the Blackdown Hills divided communities who chose to structure their landscape very differently, and while variations in the natural environment certainly played a part, they are not the whole explanation. Instead, it appears that there were deep-rooted differences in the nature of society either side of the Blackdown Hills that includes how social stratification was displayed, and the propensity for embracing change.

Keywords:   landscape character, historic landscapes, regional variation, Blackdown Hills, society, social stratification
