Disruption and persistence: resolving the Maya climate-collapse hypothesis

This project will to test the climate-catastrophe theory of the Classic ‘Maya Collapse’ of the 8-11th centuries A.D., by generating a detailed record of climate and huma more...

Urbanism after Angkor (14th-18th century): re-defining Collapse

The collapse of the medieval city of Angkor, in modern Cambodia, and its kingdom created an historical ‘dark age’ that we believe is more apparent than real. Applying a more...
