Summary

This paper will discuss landscape archaeology as viewed from the water. Following the theme of questions that count, it will attempt to address a series of questions: Does the landscape change when viewed from the water? How best to approach landscapes as viewed from the water? What is the relationship between geography, technology, and culture in approaching a landscape from water? And finally, what is the role of maritime landscapes in the larger field of landscape archaeology? In order to address these questions, the author will draw on his own experience with the maritime landscapes of the Great Lakes, as well as published historical, archaeological and geographical sources.
