The few literate cultures in AD 536 recorded intense cold, crop failures, starvation, and deaths. About 75% of the people in a northern Chinese kingdom died. Similar problems were reported around the Mediterranean. Tree rings in North America, Europe, and Asia record 15 years of cold beginning in AD 536. Ice cores in Greenland and in Antarctica record a dramatic increase in sulfur in the same year, indicating a volcanic eruption was the cause, and not an asteroid impact.

Reindeer and auroch hunting groups in the Upper Paleolithic of Europe were big-game hunters who survived in a landscape that is very different from today. In coastal Portugal ground-penetrating radar and geological mapping has placed a number of sites ranging in age from 30,000 to 25,000 years ago in an environment that was dry, cold and populated by herds of large herbivores. Hunting strategies and subsistence methods can be inferred by placing information from standard archaeological methods into this complex ancient world.

Peru is one of the richest archaeological regions in the world.  Despite the importance of these ancient sites and the wealth generated through tourism, the archaeological heritage of Peru is being destroyed at an unprecedented rate.  Dr. Billman will discuss how MOCHE, Inc., a nonprofit organization, is working to protect the 10 most endangered archaeological sites on the north coast of Peru within the next five years.
