Quick Reference

A concept of landscape which attempted to classify landscapes, usually distinguishing between the natural and the cultural landscape. The term became part of modern geographical currency in Germany towards the end of the 19th century. ‘It did not do so unambiguously, however, and this has had unfortunate consequences for the translation of the term into landscape in the English-speaking literature’ (A. Baker2003).
