This thesis assesses the meaning of cultural landscapes for the residents of three regions. The term ‘landscape’ could be used for every landscape that exists in the world (Schein, 1997). In general, a landscape is the result of practices, relationships and interaction of nature with humans (Butler, 2016; Council of Europe, 2000; Swanwick, Hanly & Termansen, 2007). Therefore, a landscape might be a valuable source towards understanding the past of a culture or region (Kuechler, 1993).
