Snowdonia’s Early Fieldscapes
Reconstructing and conserving the prehistoric and Roman landscapes of north-west Wales
A new study in progress by Emily La Trobe-Bateman PH.D
The prehistoric and Roman fieldscapes of north-west Wales comprise field boundaries, associated enclosures and settlements. The project will explore how and why they changed with time.
- How and why were the uplands of Snowdonia first enclosed?
- What does the evidence for field boundaries, enclosures and settlement say about social and economic change?
- What is the influence of early fieldscapes on the structure of later landscapes?
