Description

Modern climate change has serious consequences for the knowledge of our past. Desertification, eroding coasts, rising sea levels and melting permafrost threaten the preservation of natural and cultural sites. These and other damaging processes not only jeopardise the archaeological record, but also the living cultural practices of affected communities and their economic and social resilience. As the planet faces increasing global temperatures, the perils posed by rapid climate change will continue to be a major challenge for archaeology throughout the twenty-first century. This conference will explore the modern climate change related challenges to the practices of archaeology and heritage management, as well as productively contribute to current climate change debates.
