Summary Archaeologists have long encountered evidence of natural disasters through excavation and stratigraphy. In Surviving Sudden Environmental Change, case studies examine how eight different past human communities--ranging from Arctic to equatorial regions, from tropical rainforests to desert interiors, and from deep prehistory to living memory--faced and coped with such dangers.
