Recensies en Artikelen

"Dit fraai uitgegeven boek veel interessants over heden en verleden van het Waddengebied. [...] Al met al een mooi, informatief en toegankelijk boek."
- Piet van Cruyningen, Tijdschrift voor Waterstaatsgeschiedenis, 2 (2020)

"The different sections and chapters [in this book] offer a wide variety of topics that sometimes ask for further exploration or more research. This makes the book a worthwhile purchase for both scientists, policy makers and other people with a keen interest in this dynamic and special region."
- David Koren, Journal of European Landscapes, 1 (2020)

History, Landscape and Cultural Heritage of the Wadden Sea Region

De onderstaande tekst is niet beschikbaar in het Nederlands en wordt in het Engels weergegeven.
The Wadden Sea Region is comprised of the embanked coastal marshes and islands in the Wadden Sea near Denmark, Germany, and the Netherlands. This area retains an exceptional common history in all its aspects: archaeologically, economically, socially, and culturally. Its settlement history of more than two thousand years is unrivalled and still mirrored in the landscape. Even though it has never constituted a political unity, it still shares a landscape and cultural heritage. For example, the approaches to water management and associated societal organization developed in the region during the last millennium have set significant world standards. This book offers an overview of current research on history, landscape and cultural heritage of the Wadden Sea region.
