  • Abstract in English : "This paper summarises academic and lay attitudes to landscapes from the mediaval period to the twentieth century. It explores the process of discovering the history of landscape, including late mediaeval and Tudor travellers, the development of cartography, the landscape element of county and regional historiography, the growth of antiquarianism, the Victorian climate of nostalgia for vanishing landscapes, through to the work of landscape pioneers and the marriage of disciplines."
