Definition of Historical geography

Historical geography Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & Glossaries
English Wikipedia - The Free Encyclopedia
Historical geography is the branch of geography which studies the ways in which geographic phenomena have changed over time. It is a broadly synthetic discipline which shares both topical and methodological similarities with history, anthropology, ecology, geology, environmental studies, literary studies, and other fields. Although the majority of work in historical geography is considered human geography, the field also encompasses studies of geographic change which are not primarily anthropogenic. In academia, historical geography is a growing field practiced by scholars in more than forty countries.
