The term intimate landscape is used by photographers to refer to images that capture small portions of broad scenic landscapes while illustrating their interconnectedness. I argue that the intimate landscape concept offers historical archaeologists a useful approach for interpreting discrete landscapes in and around dwelling sites. These household landscapes are dynamic spaces connected to diverse discourses at the individual, local, regional, and global scales. Drawing on examples from slave and tenant farming households on a nineteenth century South Carolina plantation, this paper will examine the possible meanings imbued in these intimate landscapes.
