How have people changed the land in the UK?
The UK was once forested almost entirely. People cut down trees for their fires and to build homes when they began to end a nomadic hunter-gatherer way of life. Once settled, it was natural to clear trees for growing crops. Live-stock, especially sheep, cropped the grasses short and prevented the trees from reforesting the land.
When the Enclosure Act became law, estate owners enclosed fields with hedges and walls, often removing people already living there. So the tenant farmer came into being.
Then came the Industrial Revolution, when industry - manufacturing and weaving - put a virtual end to cottage industries - weaving in the upstairs of cottages became uneconomical.
Farm-workers flocked to the cities, and the expansion of the town and cities into a smoking, stifling, blot on the countryside, began.
There is much more that changed the land. What one sees when out in the countryside, today, is all man-made!
Dublin is a city that is growing. So a lot of the land has changed from being fields to being built on. So there are houses and roads and motorways on some of the land. Some land is still undeveloped. There is also some farmland in the Dublin area. That is often changed as farmers work on it. Some land has been developed for recreational purposes into parks or playgrounds, sporting facilities etc.

Regarding the Land: At any time when Israel's people have lived in the land and had control of their own lives, the land has always been called "Israel." (In the Second Temple era the constraint of exile caused the people to refer to the land as Judah, since most of the tribes had been exiled and no longer dwelt in the land.) Regarding the Person: God changed Jacob's name to Israel (Genesis ch.35) as a…
