Résumé/Abstract:

Homo sapiens is a widely distributed species with a proven ability to adapt to a range of climate types. Nevertheless, the archaeological record indicates that climate change may cause large-scale reorganisations of human systems. Understanding the nature of climate change at specific points in time is crucial to gaining an understanding of human/environment interactions and the mechanisms of human resilience. This goal serves a dual purpose, allowing climatologists to refine their modelling techniques while providing context for the application of spatially explicit archaeological models of past human adaptations. This talk examines how ten years of close collaboration between archaeologists and climatologists has allowed the Hominin Dispersals Research Group (HDRG) to address these topics and how we hope to apply this knowledge in the future.
