Create a new lawn

I would like to change an area of grass which appears to have been used for grazing for years into a lawn. it is very tussocky grass and very uneven, similar to the foreground of the accompanying picture.
One suggestion is to rotovate it, but others say that is the worst thing to do. any suggestions please?
It looks big so will be hard work. Normally you could mow as low as possible, spray with glyphosate, wait, then rotavate, then level, wait, glyphosate, wait, seed. Leveling is the hard bit.
But, if it is lumpy, you have problems. The reason to mow low is to make rotavating easier. You need a decent machine, not a pathetic home one.
I suppose you could borrow or snaffle some sheep and/or goats to mow it.
How deep is the soil? What is it like, I guess okay given the grass.
