Special Section: Climate Change

“Around the world, climate change is impacting archaeological sites and landscapes of both local and global significance. This special section from Antiquity casts light on some of the most relevant and well-documented climate impacts causing damage to archaeological resources in different types of environments and landscapes found around the world. We hope that the special section will help to raise attention to the fact that countries around the world currently face a shared crisis of global proportions that could lead to the loss of important records of the past.” - Dr Jørgen Hollesen
