Debating chronologies: Quaternary environmental change and human activity in NW Europe
A two-day workshop will be held in March 2013 to bring together fieldwork and chronometry specialists from Archaeology and the geosciences in order to examine human settlement and environmental change during the last million years of the Quaternary period in the North Atlantic and NW Europe. The workshop will be divided into two parts, covering the Holocene and Pleistocene periods. It will explore and debate the utility and reliability of relevant Quaternary scientific dating methods, especially in establishing criteria for their reliability and comparability, and those approaches that obtain the highest resolution. The workshop also aims to identify future research priorities for Quaternary chronometric research.
