Abstract

Early settlement in the North Atlantic produced complex interactions of culture and nature. The sustained program of interdisciplinary collaboration is intended to focus on ninth‐ to 13th‐century sites and landscapes in the highland interior lake basin of Mývatn in Iceland and to contribute a long‐term perspective to larger issues of sustainable resource use, soil erosion, and the historical ecology of global change.
