In the middle of a global pandemic, it might be easy to forget that we’re also in the middle of a climate crisis. However, while the current rate of climate change is unprecedented, the world has seen climate shifts before – on both regional and global scales.
In this webinar, Dr Keir Strickland and Professor Susan Lawrence will examine what archaeology can tell us about the impacts of climate change events on past societies – from shifts in farming and settlement patterns to the collapse of civilisations.
We’ll also take some time to look forward – and examine the impacts that climate deterioration could have on cultural heritage and archaeology as a profession.
