Project Description

In this session, archaeological science and tangible cultural heritage take centre stage in the interdisciplinary polar research agenda. Archaeology has a long tradition of being a thematic and methodological “interdiscipline”. Our daily bread is the study of continuous human adaptation to age-old environmental and social change. We invite papers and e-posters from across the range of heritage professionals and other stakeholders for a show and tell: Introduce the one archaeological object (alternatively one structure, site, or landscape) that to you embodies an indispensable polar aspect and bears witness to recent changes, and deliver its global message that would otherwise not be heard. Preference will be given to contributions that demonstrate a direct link to the conference call. We strongly encourage traditional and Indigenous participation and perspectives.
