Ritual landscapes are extensive 'sacred' archaeological tracts which were seemingly dedicated to ceremonial purposes in the Neolithic and early Bronze Ages (circa 3,500-1,800 BC). The term itself began to emerge in the early 1980s in British archaeology, and was contrasted with more conventional studies of monument sites concerned with dating, classification and political divisions.
