Title: Advances in Environmental Archaeology in the Post-Classical Mediterranean World

Content: The relationship between humans and the environment is a well-established aspect of Mediterranean archaeology, although traditionally this has been dominated by the study of prehistoric and Classical societies. This session aims to take stock of the current state-of-the-art of environmental archaeology used in the study of post-Classical societies in the Mediterranean World, which includes southern Europe, North Africa and the Levant, encompassing continental, island and marine sites. The archaeological applications of geoarchaeology, biomolecular analyses and high-resolution dating methods are increasingly used in the study of historic societies across the Mediterranean but remain unevenly represented, fragmented and perhaps even isolated from each other despite sharing common objectives. The intention of this session is to share and exchange techniques, methodologies, theoretical frameworks and best practice relating to the application of the full suite of environmental archaeology sub-fields, including palaeobotany, zooarchaeology, geoarchaeology, biomolecular archaeology and paleoclimatology. Detailed case studies are encouraged from across the Mediterranean World with an emphasis on illustrating successful methodologies, rather than simply presenting descriptive summaries. We also encourage papers that demonstrate the engagement of environmental archaeology with major cultural questions about the development of Mediterranean societies in the post-Classical period, especially those with inter-regional perspectives.

Keywords: Environmental archaeology; Palaeoecology; Mediterranean; Post-Classical
