Abstract

A study in the Faroe Islands resulted in an initial interpretation of landscape history which subsequent examination showed to be flawed. Difficulties were generated by a combination of working across several languages and the problems arising from enquiry and explanation concerning unusual landscape features. The paper explores the steps involved in achieving an understanding of a particular humanly-altered landscape and reflects upon the dangers inherent in taking a more superficial approach to such a task
