Friends’ Hybrid Lecture
Prof. Amy Bogaard (University of Oxford), “Archaeology and ‘eco-cultural’ heritage: case studies from Greece and beyond”
Abstract: The climate and biodiversity crises are prompting new conversations about the archive of human experience we can draw upon to address them. Archaeology in Greece offers a deep time perspective on key topics such as land use, together with related research on the ecological and social contingencies that shape farming regimes and culinary practices in the past and present. In this talk I draw upon case studies from Greece and other parts of Europe to illustrate archaeology’s rich potential and contributions in a broader context of ‘eco-cultural’ heritage as an emerging cross-disciplinary field.
