“A Walk In The Snow, Naked” by lickyoats
A research consortium, led by Professor John Lowe in the Geography Department at Royal Holloway, University of London, has been awarded funding of £3m to develop a novel approach for assessing how humans may have responded to rapid environmental changes during the recent past.
A five-year project named RESET (Response of Humans to Abrupt Environmental Transitions), funded by the Natural Environment Research Council, brings together scientists from the universities of London, Oxford and Southampton and the Natural History Museum, London, based at the National Oceanography Centre, Southampton, with expertise in human palaeontology, archaeology, oceanography, volcanic geology and past climate change.
Dr Simon Blockley, from Oxford University’s Research Laboratory for Archaeology and the History of Art, said “Research like this is fundamental in understanding the role of climate change to the development and adaptation of our species.”
Best you crack on guys, we haven’t got long.
