Understand the philosophical foundations for making sound, educated decisions about the preservation and long-term management of historic and cultural landscapes.
In this introduction to the basics of cultural landscapes, learn about designed, vernacular, and ethnographic landscapes, and historic sites. Review applicable laws and regulations, and discuss how to identify and inventory character-defining features of a landscape.
