Welcome to the CLIOARCH collaboratory!

CLIOARCH stands for CLIOdynamic ARCHaeology: Computational approaches to Final Palaeolithic/earliest Mesolithic archaeology and climate change. This project seeks to quantify and hence qualify human responses to rapidly changing climates, extreme environmental events, migration and adaptation in the so-called Final Palaeolithic and the earliest Mesolithic, the period between 15,000 and 11,000 years, in Europe. The project begins with a soul-searching investigation of relevant epistemologies and then deploys state-of-the-art computational techniques - all set within a cultural evolutionary framework - to understand the patterns and processes of human adaptation in this period. Finally and as a test of CLIOARCH's methods, we will also prospect for new stratified archaeological sites with evidence from this period.
