About the project


Looking Up will utilize knowledge about deglacial landscapes to provide new data and methodologies to identify and manage early prehistoric archaeological remains in Europe’s mountains. This will directly inform policy debates surrounding the conservation of mountain landscapes/ecosystems and management of montane cultural heritage.


Looking Up will provide:

    New data on Late Glacial and Early Holocene landscape evolution through fieldwork, geochronology, and numerical modelling.
    Informed by this, and synthesis of data on hunter-gatherer use of mountain landscapes elsewhere, we will generate predictive models of archaeological site location
    Field reconnaissance will explore these predictions.
    Reporting to key stakeholders to inform the development of policy and local management
    Development of outreach to promote this new knowledge.


Principal Investigators:
