Landscape Several case studies in this volume illustrate the general principle put forward earlier that negotiation has a spatial dimension. The analysis of landscapes is well developed in archaeology and makes important contributions to the understanding of intercultural engagements in the recent period because it demonstrates the importance of looking at large fields of interaction rather than small subsets.
