The recording of 20th-century wartime landscapes on the home front,
as opposed to landscapes of war in overseas battle zones, has had a
chequered history since its inception in the 1970s. Made up of seemingly
endless defence types, the subject has still not fully shaken off its reputation
as a form of military train-spotting. However, recording has now gone well
beyond this stage, adopting holistic approaches which recognise that
inter-related networks of defence were of varying strategic importance with
cores and peripheries, and that a fuller appreciation of the historical context
comes from a study of structures and documents within the three main
physical theatres in which warfare was conducted and organised, that is, by
land, sea and air.
