The Proceedings of our international workshop “Socioenvironmental dynamics over the last 12,000 years: the creation of landscapes II (held in Kiel March 14-18, 2011) have been reviewed in Antiquity (Volume 87, Number 337, Pp 942-947).
In Robert Witcher’s New Book Chronicle, which includes reviews of several works on past, present and future of people and environment, the Graduate School is said to have “established itself as an important player in European landscape archaeology, promoting a highly interdisciplinary approach spanning the humanities and sciences in pursuit of key questions about past societies and environment” (p. 944). After this praise, the author goes through the strengths and weaknesses of several of the 17 papers assembled in the volume, which was edited by Graduate School members Jutta Kneisel, Wiebke Kirleis, Marta Dal Corso, Nicole Taylor and Verena Tiedtke.
