What have religion and belief to do with the historic landscape?

Simply put, the historic environment is the result of human action, which is always conditioned by beliefs.

This applies in particular of course to ritual and religious sites, monuments and buildings, but extends to the manifestations of beliefs and superstitions in everyday life and things.

Held at Norman Lockyer Observatory, the conference will this year explore how religion has shaped the cultural and physical landscapes of East Devon and include a mix of presentations by heritage professionals and local enthusiasts.
