As we constantly hear about sea levels rising in the not-too-distant future, it’s important to understand how this has affected our ancient ancestors and how these changes have been preserved in the archaeological record.
During this one-day course, participants will learn about the archaeological evidence from intertidal and submerged prehistoric sites and what that can teach us about past landscapes. It will focus mainly on the UK but with some examples from Europe. As well as considering what these sites add to the archaeological record, the module will consider the processes of submergence, bringing in new evidence for the complexity of tectonic changes and human adaptations to sea-level change. Participants will learn through a series of presentations and practical online activities and will have the opportunity to participate in ongoing projects after the course.
