As a network of continental European and UK-based archaeobotanists, archaeozoologists, archaeologists, it is open to all those actively involved or interested in any aspect of environmental archaeology. The conference on one of the GS HDL core topics “Social space and environment: landscape reconstruction in environmental archaeology” will deal with issues about: social space and farming communities, social consequences of environmental restrictions, novel methods and proxies to assess societal and environmental change, and quantification and modeling of environmental and economic processes.
