Present settlement landscapes are not in any way static. They are moving through time.

Present settlement landscapes are not in any way static. They come from a past about which we understand something, through a present that is bewildering in its diversity and complexity, and will pass to a future which is, thankfully, hidden. Thus, to understand rural settlements, historical explanations are needed, involving the reconstruction of past events by means of the unique phenomena resulting from these events. Two further points must be made: first, the maps and diagrams included in this book are not merely adjuncts to the text, they are an integral part of the argument; they must be studied in relation to the text.
