The 7th edition of the Landscape Archaeology Conference is the first edition to take place in Eastern Europe. Starting from this realisation and the fact that landscape archaeology is a discipline that naturally glides through dogmatic disciplinary boundaries, we have decided that the word that would best describe our meeting in Iasi would be togetherness.


Around this word we have gathered other seven that define the six themes of the conference.

- Responsibility. Identifying and assessing anthropic pressure on built and natural landscapes
- Defragmentation. Thinking together about humans, time, and landscapes in a postcolonial world
- Integration. The peopled earth – interrelationship of human and natural systems
- Sensitivity. Landscapes as embodied experiences
- Explanation and Comprehension. Modelling landscapes from quantifiable attributes to cultural constructs
- Cooperation. Theoretical and technological multidisciplinary approaches to the reconstruction of past landscapes
