Abstract

Spatial historical analysis is very helpful in research. Historical analyses allow for: the re-construction of the process underpinning the creation and evolution of cultural landscapes from the Middle Ages up to modern times; the identification of phenomena and processes that are the direct and indirect consequences of historical events; and the reconstruction of cause-and-effect connections between events in a region and the contemporary physiognomy of its cultural land-scape.

Keywords: central Poland, changes in cultural landscape, historical analyses
