 About the Book 

The papers in this volume grapple with the problems thrown up by Prehistoric landscapes which have been hidden, for example by sedimentation or urbanisation. They address the consequences of the inbuilt biases in archaeological surveying and in the existing survey data, explore methodologies for a more integrated approach to landscape history, as well as providing case studies of erosion in past mountain and upland landscapes, and of the investigation of sedimentary basins. Issues relating to the conservation of hidden archaeological landscapes are also discussed.
