The Archaeology of Climate Change in the Caribbean: Pre-Columbian populations in the Caribbean lived through 5000 years of dynamic climate change including over 6 metres of sea level rise, marked variation in rainfall and fluctuating periods of hurricane activity. I am interested in combining existing archaeological, climatic and environmental data from the Caribbean to identify the relationship between changes in indigenous cultural practices and the impacts of climatic instability. The project engages archaeological approaches to prehistoric climate change with disaster management planning for the impacts of climate change in the present. The primary aim of the project is to contribute to ongoing debates on climate change and provide modern day populations in the Caribbean with knowledge of pre-Colombian mitigation strategies.
