AbstractHistoryArchive Description

''Place is not a simple concept. There is 'place' as we know it from walking along it, from looking and working and taking shelter in it. There is 'place' shown on maps, where we run our fingers across swathes of it, locating points or large areas in relation to each other, orienting ourselves. There is 'place' as landscape and seascape, depicted in painted, photographed and filmed images, and described in written texts. And there is the 'idea of place' - a product formed in a culture through association of a site with an accumulation of outputs and critical responses: emotion - all that comes culturally to settle in place.' (Author's introduction p. 158)
