The Land Rights Timeline explores an alternative history of land rights in London, England since its existence as Londinium in 54BC. The categorisation, ownership and use of land is seen as the key indicator of the relationship between citizens and their representatives – where lines of list rights, practices and structures can be observed through the mapping process.
This is a project produced under the auspices of The New Putney Detates which is a democratic festival initiated by the Occupy London collective in 2012. The first New Putney Debates was a series of events inspired by the Levellers’ and Diggers’ demands for social justice, civil rights and equal access to the land, celebrating the 365th year anniversary of the original Putney Debates.
