Introduction to Issue 25
John Cattel, our National Head of Research introduces Issue 25 of Historic England Research Magazine, which focuses on why and how change to the historic environment can be managed at landscape level.
In this issue the following articles look at ways of managing change to our heritage and the broad landscape level. The starting point for this exploration is that what we may thing of as 'natural' landscapes have in fact been shaped by thousands of years of human activity.
Change can come for example through development or planned climate change responses such as tree planting or rewilding. Many of the methods of managing change that we feature here tap into technologies such as GIS and predictive modelling.
