This special volume of Quaternary International is dedicated to the proceedings of the first international Landscape Archaeological Conference (LAC2010) held in January 2010 at the VU University in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The mission of the congress was to have multiple sessions within which scholars from the different academic disciplines could exchange and discuss research experiences, theories and ideas. The conference attracted far more visitors than originally expected, and was considered as successfully filling an empty space in academia. The next conference, LAC2012, will be organized by the Freie Universität Berlin. Here, the proceedings of the LAC2010 are presented in twelve papers, covering the wide field of landscape archaeology. In addition to this special volume, 35 other papers derived from abstracts of LAC2010 are published in a publication of Landscape and Heritage Series (LHS), Amsterdam University Press (Kluiving and Guttmann, in press). This volume is published as a separate proceedings volume next to the volume of Kluiving and Guttmann (in press). Important features are the definitions used of the word ‘landscape’ that can be confusing in the minds of researchers of different disciplines. Therefore a short historical account will be given here on the use of the term ‘landscape’ as well as the emergence of the study of landscape archaeology.
