Landscapes of Movement: Trails, Paths, and Roads in Anthropological Perspective

Synopsis

Landscapes of Movement originates from the premise that trails, paths, and roads are the physical manifestation of human movement through the landscape and are central to an understanding of that movement. The study of these features connects with many intellectual domains, engaging history, geography, environmental studies, and, in particular, anthropology and archaeology. These diverse fields together provide not only a better understanding of infrastructure but also of social, political, and economic organization, cultural expressions of patterned movement, and the ways in which trails, paths, and roads reflect a culture's traditional knowledge, worldview, memory, and identity. Proceedings of Landscapes of Movement: Trails, Paths, and Roads in Anthropological Perspective, Philadelphia, May 29-June 2, 2006.
