REVIEWER MEETS REVIEWED

SEMINAR SERIES AT THE BRITISH MUSEUM’S ANTHROPOLOGY LIBRARY AND RESEARCH CENTRE

Hunter-gatherer behaviour: human response during the Younger Dryas

Thursday 14 November at 11.00 am (tea & coffee served from 10.30 am)

Anthropology Library and Research Centre, British Museum

THIS IS A FREE EVENT

The British Museum’s Anthropology Library and Research Centre, in conjunction with the Royal Anthropological Institute, is pleased to present the second seminar in the 2013-14 series of ‘Reviewer meets Reviewed’, a discussion between Dr Metin Eren, author of ‘Hunter-gatherer behavior: human response during the Younger Dryas’ and Dr Kevan Edinborough, who reviewed the book for the Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute.

A major global climate event called the Younger Dryas dramatically affected local environments and human populations at the end of the Pleistocene. This volume is the first book in fifteen years to comprehensively address key questions regarding the extent of this event and how hunter-gatherer populations adapted behaviorally and technologically in the face of major climatic change. An integrated set of theoretical articles and important case studies, written by well-known archaeologists, provide an excellent reference for researchers studying the end of the Pleistocene, as well as those studying hunter-gatherers and their response to climate change.
