Exploration of archaeological landscape

Many secrets remain surrounding the creation of Stonehenge. Archaeologists try to unravel the mystery.

Landscape archaeology refers to a method of studying past people and their material culture in the context of the wider environment they inhabited and interacted with. The landscape may be large, such as a wide marshy river delta or small, like a back garden. It is often employed in cultural resources management to recognize exposed sites. Landscape archeology addresses the difficult issues of the behavior that people intentionally and deliberately shaped the land around them.
