The reconstruction of ancient landscapes is not just about physical entities, but also about conceptual ones. Based on her PhD dissertation, Symonds examines how material culture can be used to reflect on landscape and social practice, taking pottery production in 10th-century Lincolnshire as her case study. Taking a combined theoretical, geographical, historical, typological, GIS and statistical approach, she looks at the ways in which material culture structured social life and explores how daily practices, memory, perceptions of places, territory and movement can bring a better understanding of how landscapes were formed, used and perceived.
