Perspectives on the making of the Cavan landscape
Duffy, P.J. (1995) Perspectives on the making of the Cavan landscape. In: Cavan: essays on the history of an Irish county. Irish Academic Press, Dublin, pp. 14-36. ISBN 0-7165-2554-2
The aim of this essay is to provide a geographical overview of the Cavan region refracted, as it were, through the lenses of a variety of sources. In this way we can throw light on some of the problems in studying the evolution of the Cavan landscape. The concept of landscape evolution forms a convenient frame of reference. 'Landscape' can be defined as the territorial expression of the imprint of society in material and non-material forms through past time. The 'making' of that landscape, a term used especially by geographers, emphasises the centrality of society's role in the emerging morphology of the landscape.
