Battlefields from Event to Heritage

John Carman and Patricia Carman

  • The first work to theorize on the largely unexamined heritage place of the 'historic battlefield'
  • Draws upon examples from prehistory to the 20th century to examine how the category of battlefield can be applied to diverse contexts and forms and explore modern attitudes towards the ideas of 'battle' and 'battlefield'
  • Makes an explicit connection between archaeological and military-historical approaches to battle and emerging critical fields relating to conflict
