Two Valleys Archaeology in an Environmental Humanities Context

Author(s): Ramona Harrison; Arni Daniel Juliusson

Year: 2023


This is an abstract from the "Climate and Heritage in the North Atlantic: Burning Libraries" session, at the 88th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.

This talk discusses the challenges of connecting the currently ongoing Two Valleys Project in Iceland to various scales of research on human ecodynamics of the past and global challenges we face in our time. This interdisciplinary project expands on previous research into human-nature interactions within various marine and terrestrial environments of the Eyjafjord region. The Two Valleys Project looks to address long-term coastal and inland resource organization and exchange strategies as part of local and international socioeconomics. Siglunes, a coastal site threatened by coastal erosion, will be of central focus to highlight how long-term archaeological fieldwork is the anchor in this regional node as part of a larger system of Distributed Observing Networks of the Past (DONOP).
