The Maritime Cultural landscape (MCL) is the combining of sea and land. This archaeological term, coined in the 1998 by Westerdahl, provides a framing and approach to what constitutes the maritime space or world applicable both beyond maritime archaeology and to historical analysis. Through the topic of the role of art in Victorian and Edwardian national identity, the MCL, as a framing of space and attributing of place, will be explored for future research on the deep inland interaction and influence of the maritime world.
