Climate and ancient societies (Greece)
A four-year project funded by the Swedish Research Council (project no. 2019-02868).
The rich archaeological and paleoenvironmental records from the Peloponnese peninsula (Greece) are investigated to provide an integrated understanding of the role of climate and climate change for Bronze Age societies (ca. 3200‒1050 BCE). These records provide information on how different societies and societal structures adapted to and utilized changing environmental conditions arising from climate change over the short-term and the long-term.
The current project - Climate and ancient societies in Bronze Age Peloponnese - builds on and develops further the results from the previous project Domesticated Landscapes of the Peloponnese (DoLP).
