Henry Chapman (Archaeology, Birmingham), Andrew Fox (Classics, Nottingham), Ralph Fyfe (Geography-Archaeology, Plymouth), and Diana Spencer (Classics, Birmingham) will be joining us to discuss how human interactions have impacted nature and the environment across time.

The roundtable will explore how human activity has shaped landscapes and climate (and vice versa) and the ways in which such historic effects are visible through archaeological data, sites, and written sources. This event has been organised by the Birmingham Research Institute for History and Cultures(BRIHC), in collaboration with the Department of Classics, Ancient History and Archaeology, and the Centre for Byzantine, Ottoman and Modern Greek Studies (CBOMGS).
