The archaeological, historical, geomorphological and geoarchaeological study of the Berzence region in the Middle Drava Valley (Somogy County, Hungary) was initiated with a dual purpose. On the one hand our study seeks to answer the question how did communities adjust their settlement patterns, farming methods and landscape uses to the benefits and challenges of their environment. On the other hand, as a problem of methodology, the project also intends to examine in what ways the historical, archaeological, and scientific sources and methods available in Hungary can contribute to a better understanding of medieval human-landscape interaction and past exploitation.
