About this book

Moving from prehistory to the present and around the world, this volume explores the many ways in which the Earth has been transformed by human effort. The meaning, importance, and use of the works is described, from ancient Egyptian funerary monuments, to earthworks by present-day artists such as Andy Goldsworthy.
