ABSTRACT

Mountain fortresses defense system planning and construction directly affect city and national security, has always caught the attention of governments and academic circles. The mountain fortresses defense system in the upper reaches of the Yangtze River supported the Southern Song Dynasty to fight against the Yuan army for more than half a century and has outstanding heritage value. Most existing studies have carried out case studies on the planning and construction characteristics of single mountain fortress defense from the classical engineering or morphological perspective, but there is a lack of scientific and systematic discussion on the planning and construction characteristics and rules of multiple mountain fortresses defense systems that are interconnected at regional scale. Combined with the research theme of cultural landscape that were  large-scale and dynamic, giving consideration to tangible and intangible, and integrating culture and nature, this paper puts forward the concept of mountain fortresses defense cultural landscape, obtains data by using the methods of field investigation and historical literature retrieval, and analyzes the basic composition and spatial distribution range of the anti-Yuan mountain fortresses defense system in the upper reaches of the Yangtze River, so as to clarify its basic composition at the system level as a cultural landscape, and provides basic theoretical support for the systematic protection of this cultural landscape heritage.
