|Title:||Climate change and hunter gatherers in Ireland: problems, potentials and pressing research questions||Authors:||Warren, Graeme||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/11809||Date:||28-Feb-2020||Online since:||2020-12-11T13:07:38Z||Abstract:||This paper reviews evidence for the potential impact of climate change on the earliest human settlement of Ireland, primarily within the Mesolithic period. Three key areas are examined: the broad correlation between climate change and the timing of the settlement of Ireland; the impact of climatically driven sea level change; and, finally the influence of key Holocene climate ‘events’ such as the 8.2 cal BP Event. Ireland should be well-placed to contribute to debates about the impact of climate change on prehistoric hunter-gatherers, but much of our data is insufficiently precise to understand this in detail.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Royal Irish Academy||Journal:||Proceedings of the Royal Irish Academy: Archaeology, Culture, History, Literature||Volume:||120||Start page:||1||End page:||22||Copyright (published version):||2020 Royal Irish Academy||Keywords:||Climate change; Hunter gatherers; Paleoclimatology; Sea level; Radiocarbon dating; Tsunamis; Agriculture; Population dynamics; Archaeology||DOI:||10.3318/priac.2020.120.01||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||ISSN:||0035-8991||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/ie/|
