Subsequently, the emphasis in geography moved from description to the exploration of relationships between different phenomena The study of rural landscapes grew out of the settlement geography of the 1890s and 1900s. Its aim was to describe material features like houses and barns, roads and paths, fields and hedges, pastures and meadows, orchards and vineyards. In Jean Brunhes' Geographic humaine [sic] (1909), the study of these elements was clearly imbedded in a positivist conception of science, with an Landscape History and Landscape Heritage 25 emphasis on thorough descriptions of reality, on inventories and on regularities.
Sometimes, Sauer believed, a gradation in the strength of the defining culture was envisaged, as one moved from the cultural core, through the domain (where other cultural influences appeared) and into realm, where the other influences were stronger. Sauer also discussed cultural hearths. These were areas which served as the cores from which cultural practices and innovations diffused to establish the identity of broader cultural regions. Only a few such hearths had existed, and they were associated with particularly favoured physical environments.
At the end of the nineteenth century, Otto Schluter produced a concept of the morphology of the cultural landscape; the cultural landscape was said to include both fixed and mobile forms, the former comprising the effects upon landscape wrought by every period and culture, and the latter including humans, their works and movements; thus, 'The cultural landscape includes, therefore, not only the routes and route patterns, but also the men and goods which move along them' (Dickinson, 1939 p. 2).
