Abstract
In consequence of a long tradition, archaeologists focus on individual sites and features and not landscape itself. We propose to perceive the landscape as a taskscapes, a space where tasks are performed, by that its own identity is created. Airborne remote sensing methods establish a possibility of studies on a larger scale of and to perceive places as context for landscapes and vice versa. On the other hand we would like to draw attention to identification of paleoenvironment features in the context of past landscapes. Although it is not always possible to determine the relationship between these element and traces of past human activities, we must be aware that in the past they had and influence on human behavior. In this paper will address the question: how much do airborne remote sensing data through the ability to change the scale of our perspective upon archaeological sites and their local landscapes alter or enrich interpretation of the context of past human activities.
