Ground Check | Impact of Climate Change on Cultural Heritage – Coastal Risk and Flooding 🗓

Scheduled Post

Not only do archaeologists in cooperation with other disciplines research the effects of climate changes and their impact on the human environment, but archaeology and cultural heritage are also endangered themselves by current climate change. Global warming and the rise in sea level affect not only the distant Pacific islands and their cultural heritage, but also the coasts of Europe. Four international experts discuss calculations, scenarios and solutions regarding the threat to heritage sites by rising sea levels and flooding.

Dr David Harkin (Historic Environment Scotland)
Lena Reimann (Kiel University)
Professor Nassos Vafeidis (Kiel University)
Professor Burkhard Vogt (German Archaeological Institute)

Moderated by Volkart Wildermuth
