Long abstract:

This panel brings together different perspectives on how the past plays out in East African landscapes today: the shaping of the landscape through past agricultural practices; memories and perceptions of landscape change; and current land use and heritage policies. It draws on preliminary fieldwork conducted under HEEAL (Historical Ecologies of East African Landscapes), an interdiscplinary project based at the Archaeology Department of the University of York.
