Progressive property theory presents a recent corrective to atomistic theories that isolate property interests from the network of relations and obligations arising from the sociality of organized human society. The ‘social obligation norm’ that underpins progressive property theory stretches back to Aristotle’s philosophy of eudemonia (‘human flourishing’ or ‘living well’) written in the 4th Century BC. But property is not timeless; the world has changed.

As an archaeologist specialising in the study of rural spaces, when, during the PhD course, I met historical ecology and social micro-history, I started a path that brought me to deeply redefine my gaze at the investigation of rural spaces. It was a path of acquisition of new skills (theoretical and not only practical) that transformed my way to observe the spaces around me and also the questions that drive my research, and the way to reconstruct the past.
