‘People, Soils, Microbes: the Evolution of Inhabited Landscapes’

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesPublic Engagement – Festival/Exhibition


This workshop stemmed out of the MSc Cultural Landscapes collaboration with ASCUS Lab. The focus of the workshop was on the evolution of inhabited landscapes.
"How do we make our home in an ever-changing world, teeming with living and non-living things? Join us in a hands-on exploration of thousands-of-years-old archaeological sediments that embody histories of long-inhabited landscapes, and of the unseen, often forgotten microorganisms that mediate landscape processes and keep our ecosystem healthy and happy."
