ECSLAND Conference: European Culture expressed in Sacred Landscapes

A tribute to Professor Oliver Rackham

 

23-24 April 2015, Aula Magna, University of Sassari, Sardinia, Italy

 

The ECSLAND Conference, European Culture expressed in Sacred LANDscapes, aims to stimulate debate and discussion on European sacred landscapes and their cultural heritage by introducing innovative research on sacred landscape history, characterisation, identity, archaeology and architecture. Participants and keynote speakers on 24 April 2015 comprise scientists and policy makers from the European Landscape Convention, European universities and religious institutions including those of the ECSLAND Project. The day before, participants will be taken on an inspiring field trip to visit Sardinian sacred landscapes, where speakers outside the ECSLAND Project will be presenting their work. Researchers, professionals, governmental and NGO representatives engaged in the study, assessment and planning of European sacred landscapes are welcome to attend this two-day event.
