“any landscape—as a continually unfolding story and vast mnemonic device, a living, shifting repository of marks, lines, and erasures that “speak” of past lives, past events, past cultural myths and meanings”

To understand landscape = “to carry out an act of remembrance” (Tim Ingold qtd. in Hammer)
