After a thorough introduction to the development of the concept of cultural landscape, different attitudes and theoretical stances toward it, and practical examples from the Albanian context, where cultural landscape policy still very much needs to be thought through and developed, Vincent introduced the Albanian Lapidar Survey from his practice as artist working in the field of monumentality, and public artworks such as lapidars as a locus of intervention and research. He also introduces the details of the research methodology and different field work strategies involved.
