Prof. Morrison gave an excellent talk this evening on the LandCover6K project and the role of archaeology to explore past land use, land cover and climate modeling. The talk was held at the Penn Museum as part of their Great Lecture Series, and was packed! Prof. Morrison explored how the LandCover6k, an international scientific working group, is leading the unprecedented effort to integrate the large, scattered record of archaeological and historical data on past land use and land cover. She asked the question: how can we connect archaeological insights from around the world? In doing so the talk aims to show how as archaeologists we can better understand the long-term record of human impact on the earth and to contribute directly to the improvement of climate models.
