Human Response to Climate Change at Cape Espenberg


The project is directed at better understanding major cultural transitions – including human settlement and response to climate change – during the Thule period between AD 800 and 1400.  The interdisciplinary team consists of archaeologists and paleoecologists who are studying the rich archaeological and paleoenvironmental record at Cape Espenberg.  Ceramic analysis is focused on understanding how mobility and social networks of Cape Espenberg people changed over time.  More information and photos here and here.
