In former times, enclosed land was a very common feature of European landscapes. Fields were bounded by walls or plants, with a huge variety of material and techniques. Some features are local whilst others are widespread over the whole of Europe. What they all have in common is that they are diminishing in extent – in some countries by up to 50 per cent.
This book summarises the results of years of research by members of the Institute for Research on European Agricultural Landscapes (EUCALAND), a network that promotes understanding of the cultural and agricultural landscapes of Europe. The book is divided into two sections – a first part by multiple authors which provides a comprehensive analysis of enclosed landscapes across Europe, and a second part which contains descriptions of national situations.
