Report from Conference 2017

9th April 2017 Professor Marie Louise Stig Sorensen addresses the delegates at our conference, Modern Climate Change and the Practice of Archaeology.

Thanks to all of our participants and sponsors for a great conference in newly-restored West Court at Jesus College, Cambridge this weekend. Particular thanks to Professors Marie Louise Stig Sorensen and Robert Van de Noort for insightful opening and concluding remarks.

"On the edge" of an increasingly pressing discipline, we discussed how climate change archaeologists should, when possible, take an interdisciplinary approach to their research, engage in all forms of media for awareness-raising, and use peer-reviewed research to "get a seat" at the policy table. We look forward to working with many of you to publish these ideas and many others in ARC 32.2, due out in November.
