The origins and development of geography fieldwork in British schools

Victoria Ann Cook

Fieldwork is viewed by many as a central part of students' geographical education. How fieldwork came to assume this status is perhaps less well understood. This article explores the origins and development of fieldwork as a traditional part of students' geographical education in British schools. The non-linear nature of the developmental process is attributed to the multiple influences from both inside and outside the discipline that have shaped the fieldwork agenda over the years. The article argues than an appreciation of this diversity is important to our understanding of the multifaceted fieldwork agenda that is evident today.
