This review explores why phenomenology has been such a popular theme in landscape archaeology in the last two decades—and why it has also provoked anger and controversy. The article concentrates less on the philosophical essence of phenomenological traditions than on their practical applications and context, particularly within British landscape archaeology. Criticisms of phenomenological approaches are reviewed and suggestions for future research made. The review concludes that research into landscape and human subjectivity will continue to be a strong research theme, whether or not such work explicitly derives its theoretical approach from phenomenology.
