The physique intersects the panorama in a myriad of ways—through the trouble to arrive the picture, the angles that you may use to view, the a number of senses required for interplay. Tilley outlines the choreographic foundation of knowing historic landscapes and artwork phenomenologically, and demonstrates the facility of his thesis via examples of rock paintings and megalithic structure in Norway, eire, and Sweden. this can be a strong new version from one of many prime modern theorists in archaeology.
