Workshop on Environmental conditions in prehistory (c. 10,000 BP - present) - ecology, carrying capacity, and the landscape: integrating regional models and developing global databases

Dec 09, 2022 from 09:00 AM to 06:00 PM

Seminarraum 105 a+b, Leibnizstraße 1, 24118 Kiel

Workshop on "Environmental conditions in prehistory (c. 10,000 BP - present) - ecology, carrying capacity, and the landscape: integrating regional models and developing global databases".

Organizers: Oliver Nakoinz, Søren Wichmann, Laurenz Hillmann

Short description:

The modeling of past environments and demography is of importance to the understanding of past societies in archaeology and social science. In order to develop simulation models some basic environmental parameters are often needed. Moreover, spatial distributional analyses of archaeological may extract explanatory variables from environmental datasets. However, heterogenic data availability, different approaches, and the increasingly growing magnitude of data make comparative work difficult. Pertinent questions range from what data is most suitable for different time frames, what methods can be used in local and global research areas, and what are the minimally necessary environmental components of simulation models for prehistory. These are some of the questions that we would like to address during this one-day workshop. Its purpose is to generate ideas, to develop a good understanding of what comparative data is available globally for the study of prehistory and how it may be integrated, as well as to stimulate future collaboration.
