Patterns of land-use and human mobility in a time of climate changes (Italy, 6th to 10th cc.)

Project description

Climate change impact in medieval Italy

Central Italy between the 6th and 11th centuries represents one of the most important political and social laboratories in Europe. The EU-funded InAndAround project will map the climate change impact on human behaviour in the two micro-regions of Lucca and Rieti. The project will investigate the interaction between climate alterability and human agency, focusing on environmental management, political change, and human and workforce mobility. It will produce new long-duration and high-resolution climate records from recently cored lake sediments combined with data derived from written sources and extant climate reconstructions. By focusing on understanding the human responses to climate and environmental change, the project responds directly to the Horizon 2020 Work Programme.
