Throughout 1990s and early 2000s, Landscape Archaeology has become the embodiment of the study of cultural landscapes; how natural environment was transformed in time and which changes took place on the natural environment as well as the consequences of such anthropogenically induced transformations (Hood, 1996; Spencer-Wood and Baugher, 2010). The diversification in research brought assessment of material, social, and cognitive aspects of past landscapes. Such different approaches under Landscape Archaeology also brought diverse theoretical constructs such as the concept of social space (Delle, 1998).
