Description

Dating human interaction with climate change in the last 300,000 years, problems, advances and potential

Professor Simon Blockley
Department of Geography

This lecture is a personal perspective on efforts to resolve the role past climate change has played on human dispersal and evolution in the later Quaternary (last 300,000 years). The period is very important in the human story as it sees the movement of Early Modern Humans out of Africa, the interaction of Modern Humans with Neanderthals and a series of expansions and contractions in human populations in higher latitudes. All of this is set against major global climate change that had significant environmental impacts. This presentation will focus on attempts to precisely date and correlate archaeological and environmental records, which is difficult but key to understanding these questions.
