Details

The term ‘wasteland’ can refer to land that is unoccupied and unmodified by human civilization, but it is also applied – with increasing frequency – to land left abandoned, polluted or damaged by industrial or military activity. This illustrated cultural history explores that shift in meaning and the concept of landscape underlying it, tracing the change in perception back to ‘a particular convergence of beliefs, technologies, institutions and individuals’ in 17th- and 18th- century Britain.
