This session forms an interdisciplinary platform to bring together archaeologists and geoscientists to enhance environmental reconstructions and gain insights about human behaviour and its variability, linked or not with past environmental changes. Known benchmarks in the history of mankind resulted due to dispersal processes. Human agency, climate and environment were certainly among the principal factors driving adaptive human responses (socio- technological implications, hunting-processing strategies).

We welcome multidisciplinary contributions that link hominid activity and/or their cultural dispersal to past environmental/climate conditions in the Quaternary, based on archaeological and geological archives.

All contributors are cordially invited to submit their results in a requested special issue of the Open Access Journal of the European Geosciences Union "Climate of the Past" after the EGU General Assembly. (
