The UCL Aperture Project investigated the intersections between landscape archaeology and land art including inter-disciplinary site explorations with artists and archaeologists and a conference ‘Sharing the Field: Art in the landscape and Landscape Archaeology’ was held at UCL. The conference brought together artists and archaeologists, and those from related disciplines, to consider the inter-relationships between site-specific art in the landscape and landscape archaeology. The project explored the value of artistic approaches to the interpretation of landscape archaeology – from the deep past to the contemporary past – and conversely examined how the practice and results of landscape archaeology inform artistic approaches to urban, rural and industrial landscape.

The project was generously funded by UCL Arts & Humanities Faculty.
