• Atlas of the Irish Rural Landscape

"The Atlas of Irish Rural Landscape" has harnessed the expertise of dozens of specialists to produce an exciting and pioneering study which has two basic aims: to increase understanding and appreciation of the landscape as an important element of national heritage and to provide a much needed basis for landscape conservation and planning. The complex assemblages of features, physical and human, which gives landscapes their distinctive regional character are examined in relation to man-made elements, such as field and settlement patterns, enclosure methods, rural buildings, demesnes, villages and small towns, archaeological/historical monuments, woodland, bogs, communications, and industrial archaeology. Essentially cartographic in approach, supplemented by diagrams, photographs, paintings and explanatory text the Atlas gathers this huge range of information into an accessible, informative and visually stunning book suitable for any school, college or home. It is hoped that while of academic and educational value, the "Atlas of the Irish Rural Landscape" has a significant practical and applied dimension. It is concerned with contemporary changes in the landscape resulting from developments in agriculture, forestry, bog exploitation, tourism, housing, urban expansion, and various other forces, and proposes ways in which necessary change can be carried out in sympathy with valued landscape features
