The study of changes in cultural landscapes

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Changes in cultural landscapes are examined theoretically and through applications of the theory developed. The concept of cultural landscape is interpreted as laying emphasis on visible and experiential landscape elements resulting from human activity. A multidimensional model for the concept is developed in which landscape phenomena are formed by a combination of material factors, non-material, experiential factors and underlying human and natural factors. It is then tested in a set of small-scale case studies on the village landscapes of Nurmijärvi, Lammi, Suomenkylä and Saksala in Finland and the mountain villages of San Salvador and Huaro in the Cuzco region of Peru, representing a culture initially less familiar to the research worker
