Module description

This module examines the evidence for environment and landscape
change that has taken place over the last 20,000 years – from the last ice age to the present day. Various lines of palaeoecological evidence will be examined in order to elucidate natural (e.g., climate change) versus human-induced (e.g., deforestation) environmental change using a range of thematic case studies drawn from a range of geographical places.
