Abstract

Habitat and history are critical elements in understanding our landscape today. The landscape is essentially a legacy which may be conceived of as layers of artifacts and meanings built up over many generations in the same place. There are two segments in the following paper. In the first section there is a general discussion of the meaning of landscape and the way in which we view and comprehend 'space' as consisting of distinctive places. Secondly, we will look more objectively at the canvas of places in Meath and the manner in which we can conceive of a system of territorial landscapes that represent a rational ordering of place over long periods of time.
