Manolo, featured on the front cover, is the only remaining working shepherd and farmer in the uplands district of La Llacuna in eastern Spain. He represents a lifestyle and economy that is rapidly giving way to modern development and tourism. The project that forms the focus of this monograph sets out to document and analyse the post-medieval and early modern landscape and structures of the Serra de l'Altmirant, an upland area 30km inland from the coast between Alicante and Valencia. Although the initial aims of the project were curtailed by lack of funding, this report publishes the findings from four seasons of work carried out between 1994 and 1998, including the landscape and structure survey, field survey and ethnographic research. It also includes a gazetteer of surveyed sites.
