Abstract

[Extract] With global sea levels expected to rise by up to a metre by 2100 we can learn much from archaeology about how people coped in the past with changes in sea level. In a study published this week in Quaternary Science Reviews, we looked at how changes in sea level affected different parts of Australia and the impact on people living around the coast. The study casts new light on how people adapt to rising sea levels of the scale projected to happen in our near future.
