Abstract: 
This paper explores eco-archaeological approaches to regional scale research in dynamic landscapes. Landscape elements, a spatial concept from landscape ecology, and the archaeological notion of place are integrated with land use patterns of the evolution of landscape. This paper also applies the integrity concept to the assessment of cultural landscape. As a case study, land use dynamics of a cultural landscape in Northwestern Iran were measured and ANOV A analyses were used to project observed changes. Comparisons indicated that the patterns of landscapes would change to another states under the circumstances of land use patterns change. This study found that the changes in land use patterns diminish the existing integrity of natural and cultural landscapes.
