Mapping Ancient Africa: Climate, Vegetation & Humans
The “Mapping Ancient Africa: Climate, Vegetation & Humans” is commencing in 2021 and is a multi-year project funded by the International Union for Quaternary Research (INQUA). Specifically, the project is supported by PALCOM (the Palaeoclimate commission) and HABCOM (the Human & Biospheres commission).
The project is lead William Gosling (University of Amsterdam) and Stefanie Kaboth-Bahr (University of Potdam), with support from regional hub coordinators: Rahab Kinyanjui (National Museum of Kenya), Lynne Quick (Nelson Mandela University), and Sarah Ivory (Penn State University). The aim of the project is to bring together researchers to gain a better understanding of the relationships between climate change and hominin evolution and cultural development in Africa.
