Global warming with its very different local effects also entails a wide range of threats to the cultural heritage of the past. In this discussion the panelists provide insights into how climatic fluctuations affected the equilibrium of human-environment systems in arctic and sub-arctic regions and how thawing permafrost threatens archaeological sites and the cultural heritage of descendant communities.
