Estate Landscapes in Northern Europe is the first study of the role of the landed estate as an agent in the shaping of landscapes and societies across northern Europe over the past five centuries. Leading us into the fascinating variations of manorial worlds, the present volume seeks to open the field to include a broader perspective on estate landscapes. Estate - or manorial - landscapes were distinctive elements within the historic landscape and created their own character. Marked by larger scale fields associated with the home or demesne farm as well as a higher proportion of woodland and timber trees the landscapes reflected the scale of the resources available to the landowner and the control they exerted over the local communities. But they also represented the performative aspects of life for the elite, such as their engagement with hunting. While existing works have tended to emphasize the economic and agricultural aspect of estate landscapes, this volume draws out the social, cultural and political impact of manors and estates on landscapes throughout northern Europe. The chapters provide insights into a broad range of histories, such as the social worlds of burghers and nobility in the Dutch Republic, or the relationship between the distribution of land and the agitation for electoral reform in nineteenth-century England. Elsewhere in Scandinavia the impact of the reformation and conquest in Norway is balanced against the continuity of ownership in Sweden, where developing the natural resources for industrial enterprise such as ironworks and sawmills brought in new owners. Estate Landscapes in Northern Europe is the first product of the collaboration of researchers from Norway, Germany, Sweden, the United Kingdom, Denmark, and the Netherlands, joined together in the European Network for Country House and Estate Research (ENCOUNTER).

Estate Landscapes in northern Europe: a new agenda Jonathan Finch
This volume is the first publication from the international network ENCOUNTER (European Network for Country House and Estate Re-search). The chapters in this volume are based on papers presented at five international conferences and workshops held by the network. This book also marks the first publication in a series on northern European country houses and their landscapes. The ENCOUNTER network was founded on the initiative of Gammel Estrup The Danish Manor Museum in 2015 and established at a meeting at Gammel Estrup, supported by the Aarhus 2017 European Capital of Culture. The network brings together museum curators and academics drawn from Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. ENCOUNTER has now grown to include members from fifteen countries across northern Europe, pursuing multidisciplinary approaches to understanding the role of manor houses in the historic landscape, with the aim of developing new research agendas, informing new public en-gagement initiatives, and raising the profile of the houses, landscapes and their associated communities. In its first four years, the network has organ-ized a series of international conferences across the region, initiated the development of a common, European research project, and facilitated re-searcher exchanges between its member institutions in different countries. The network furthers the exchange of knowledge and experiences through the organization of meetings and seminars, which are open to academics, curators, policy makers, heritage agencies and charities as well as the gen-eral public.

Detail from map of Gammel Estrup manor, Denmark, within its surrounding estate landscape Based on an 1803 land survey, this map dates from 1816. Count Scheel, whose family had owned Gammel Estrup since the fourteenth century, went bankrupt in 1815. His property was assessed the following year, and this map of the estate landscape might have been drawn up as part of that process. It shows the main moated building with ornamental gardens to the north, the home farm to the west and views out across the river and meadows in the east. Beyond this manorial core are the large fields and forests that made up the estate. The avenue, another indication of an estate landscape in a Danish context, is seen to the north of the manor, leading the visitor past the estate’s park, main building, and forest, before con-tinuing towards the local village of Auning.
