Landscape History

Group Leader: Terry Couzensterry@u3a-llandrindod.org.uk

The Landscape History Group meets at 10:30am at The British Legion Hall, Llandrindod Wells.

Forthcoming meetings in 2022: 17th February; 19th May; 15th September; 17th November

The group is now in its 2nd year. This subject looks at the effects of man’s activities on our natural landscape throughout history. In Britain, we are blessed with a comparatively small island country with natural landscapes widely varied in form and nature – and man has lived in them all. Today, it is hard to see our ‘natural landscape’ for there is hardly a piece of ground that has not been worked upon, lived on, or fought over at some time in history. In that light, our landscape can tell us of our history when we recognise the evidence it holds.
