We are creating a Special Issue on land use in archeology. We would like to invite you to submit a contribution, as we feel that you are a capable author whose voice we should like to include. Increasingly, we see anthropogenic change transforming our global landscapes. However, in the past, drastic change in ecosystems and landforms have fundamentally shaped the course of social evolution. This Special Issue focuses on archaeological results and methods that have focused on determining land use in the past, covering prehistoric and historic periods in the Old and New Worlds. Archaeologists have used a variety of field-based, laboratory, experimental, and desk-based approaches to understand past land use. Authors are invited to present their results and developed methods on this topic, highlighting how their work can contribute to understanding past land use. We also feel that past land use has much to contribute to modern understanding of anthropogenic change. Researchers are encouraged to link their work on past systems with modern land use concerns. Examples can derive from any region and period to the beginning of the 20th century.
