    So essentially what the question is asking you is to compare how human actions have shaped the landscape against natural features and to say how important they are. Take for example Stonehenge which is an prehistoric monument in Wiltshire and was created by humans. It is one of the most defining features in the area so you could say that humans have made the Wiltshire landscape more striking due to their actions whilst nature has just left plain, flat fields. On the other hand you could argue that natural features such as the River Thames are more influential on the landscape because it has divided the land and influenced human decision on where the city of London is located. Other things you could talk about are quarries, mountains, cities and forests. Make sure you use plenty of case studies and examples in your work.
