By using evidence of over 50 major excavations, yielding over house plans, this book contains by far the richest data-set on Dutch Bronze Age settlements. House and Garden. We can continue to design static, ecologically dysfunctional landscapes on life support — that may be attractive, but that cost a great deal both to install and to maintain, and that provide very few environmental benefits—or we can create and care for dynamic landscapes that support life , are pleasing to the eye, cost relatively little, and provide a host of environmental benefits. We can help to make small changes to the way that land is managed by working with landowners and encouraging more sensitive management so that it is easier for wildlife to move through and re-colonise the landscape. Therefore this book is a must-have for those interested in later prehistoric cultural landscapes and settlement archaeology.
Many Living Landscape schemes also make sustainable, low carbon contributions to the local economy by providing employment opportunities, promoting locally grown food or marketing conservation grade beef from grazing herds. Creating a Living Landscape will help to maintain and enhance the natural processes that provide us with essentials such as clean air and water, healthy soils, food and flood management.
Gwent Wildlife Trust is working to restore, recreate and reconnect the landscape we live in What is a Living Landscape? A Living Landscape is not just a big nature reserve Each Living Landscape scheme consists of: Permeability across the whole landscape Land between the core areas and connecting habitats needs be more accessible to wildlife.
Joining the dots In achieving A Living Landscape we will continue to: People and communities A Living Landscape aims to reconnect people with the natural world and promote the benefits it provides - nature makes people happy!
We work closely with local communities to promote the wildlife on their doorstep. In fact, our volunteers are often vital to the success of the schemes.

Although such landscapes may seem inhospitable, the often excellently preserved archaeological evidence indicates that people lived in these lowlands throughout prehistory. This book describes why Bronze Age farmers were keen to settle here and how these prehistoric communities structured the landscape around their house-sites at various scales. Using a vast body of evidence from several large-scale excavations in the Dutch river area, the author, reconstructs the changes in the cultural landscape over time.
Starting from the Middle Neolithic, changing preferences for settlement site locations and changes in domestic architecture are traced in detail to the Iron Age.
However, for proper understanding of the cultural landscape, not only settlements but also graves and patterns of object deposition — and their landscape characteristics — are discussed. By using evidence of over 50 major excavations, yielding over house plans, this book contains by far the richest data-set on Dutch Bronze Age settlements.
Most of these results were not before published in English, making this book of over pages a true academic treasure for an international audience. The in-depth presentation of Bronze Age settlement sites, as well as the critical discussion of models and premises current in later prehistoric settlement archaeology, have an important relevance stretching beyond the Dutch lowland areas on which it is based.
The wealth of high-quality Dutch data is presented as a synthesized yet well-annotated narrative, that rises above mere site interpretation, even more so due to its landscape-scale focus. Therefore this book is a must-have for those interested in later prehistoric cultural landscapes and settlement archaeology.
