Late Quaternary Environmental Change : Physical and Human Perspectives (Hardcover) (Martin Bell & M. J.
About this item
"Late Quaternary Environmental Change considers the interaction between human agency and other environmental factors in the landscape. This second edition has been extensively revised, rewritten and reillustrated to take account of the remarkable development in Quaternary science and archaeology over the last twelve years. The book deals largely with events over the course of the last 25,000 years during which the climate of the mid- and high-latitude regions of the world has shifted from one of arctic severity to the warmer regime of the present interglacial period. The natural changes of this period were accompanied by equally dramatic human social change, as environments were increasingly transformed by human activities, leading to the creation of cultural landscapes.""This text will be essential reading for students in archaeology, geography, environmental science, geology, history and environmental conservation. It will also be of relevance to professional archaeologists and anyone with an interestin the study of archaeology and environmental history."--Jacket.
