Trajectories and temporalities of later prehistoric embanked field systems in Northwestern Europe

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskrift/Konferencebidrag i tidsskrift /Bidrag til avisTidsskriftartikel

This paper offers the first systematic account of the development of late prehistoric landscape enclosure, in Northwestern Europe. The study provides groundbreaking core research in that it builds on an exceptionally large amount of dated sites as well as highly detailed micro scale evidence, comprising more than 600 dates. It offers a new conceptual framework for understanding the spread of boundaries as a general phenomenon as well as why these forms of tenure proved sustainable for time-spans exceeding a millennium. Furthermore, by delivering the first geographical and chronological overview of this phenomenon, we anticipate it gaining high academic impact and being a core reference in future archaeological, historical and anthropological studies.
