A quarry and a spire, two significant features of landscape, the latter typically more admired and noticed than the earthwork that was necessary in its creation: both evoke aspects of endeavour that have shaped our world, motivated by perceived needs that have been matched by human effort and imagination. The etymology of ‘landscape’ predating its artistic associations carries meanings that are concerned with shaping land.
