Landscape History

Landscape History at UEA is deliberately eclectic in its approach: it is not constrained by period or geographical boundaries. The teaching material therefore ranges from early prehistory to the Cold War, from henges and hillforts to historic gardens and wartime pillboxes. An emphasis is also placed on long term trends over time and the way in which the landscape has had an enduring legacy in the structuring of attitudes and beliefs of local and regional communities. The MA programme offers an intensive and practical preparation for those people who wish to undertake further post-graduate study in landscape history, but also for those who wish to enter a profession for which knowledge of the historic environment is desirable.

Entry requirements
