Archaeology, Community and Landscape in the Lincolnshire Wolds

Author(s): Jonathan Last, Steve Willis

The Lincolnshire Wolds Landscape Network was funded between 2020 and 2022 through the UKRI’s Landscape Decisions Programme, which aims to aid decision-making about how we use our land for the benefit of society, individual well-being, the economy and the environment. The Network brought together different communities of interest in the Wolds, including academics, policy-makers, curators and community groups, to help build connections between archaeological, ecological and well-being approaches. Its overall aim is to deliver better and more integrated cultural and natural heritage management and associated public benefits in what is a significant but (in terms of the historic environment) relatively overlooked rural landscape. This report is divided into three sections, covering the main objectives of the Network: • to promote understanding of the historic environment by developing a research strategy and proposals for future work; • to collate evidence to help understanding and appreciation of the interrelationships between the natural and historic environment; • to understand the values attached to the Wolds landscape and heritage by communities and visitors, and their role in people's well-being.
