Heritage in the Landscape: The 'Heroic Tumuli' in the Troad Region

Minchin, Elizabeth

Description

This chapter deals with features of the landscape, in this case the landscape of the Troad, and the way in which the features in question, its tumuli, have attracted narrative that humanises them and enriches them, creating a landscape of value. In describing this region of tumuli in this way I shall ask what it is precisely that adds value. My special focus will be on the dynamics of human interaction with the landscape in question and the strange processes of distortion in human memory.
