Call For Abstracts EAA 2022 – Session #230

We are pleased to invite you to contribute to the session #230 in the 2022 international meeting of the EAA (European Association of Archaeologists) that will be held from 31 Aug to 3 Sept in Budapest. This session is entitled:

Sediment and soil archives to decipher human-environment interactions in wetland landscapes from the Neolithic to the XXth century

This session focusses on the use of soils and sediments to decipher the interactions between climate, paleoenvironments and past societies in wetland landscapes. This approach relies on the collection and processing of geoarchaeological or paleoecological data to reconstruct socio-environmental changes in diverse cultural and chronological contexts. We propose to challenge the intercomparison of multidisciplinary data by discussing how multi-proxy analyses of soil and sediment archives from wetlands can be combined with archaeological data in order to reconstruct long-term trajectories of socioecosystems –and the resulting cultural landscapes– from the Neolithic to the XXth century. The contributions will combine archaeological studies (excavation, surveys, historical data) with a broad analytical panel of sedimentary archives (from field geomorphology and paleopedology to physico-chemical characterization and microscopic approaches). Beyond discussing socio-environmental interaction, this session will also be the place to debate broader issues such as implications for cultural heritage, wetlands reclamation, and lessons for the future management and sustainability of cultural landscapes.
