oa East African Geographical Review - East African landscapes and the study of physical geography

Volume 1964, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 1937-6812



These notes arise from a lecture given to a geography teachers' refresher course held at Makerere University College in December 1962. They are presented here, not because they are thought to contain any points of specific academic value but only because the participants at the conference claimed that the examples of landscape features given were of particular value to them for teaching purposes. The lack of academic depth in the subjects raised will be readily apparent to those many geographers who know more of the geomorphological nature of our countryside than I do, for the talk on landscapes which I gave at that conference was the first occasion on which I had ventured into the field of landscape geography. Sometimes a service can be performed by presenting to teachers an aspect of their work from the standpoint of a non-specialist. These notes are offered essentially as simple material for school teachers from a non-expert in the field of landscape geography.
