People, Places, and Prehistory: The Environment(s) of Metro Chicago
The archaeological record of the Chicago area reflects people’s interaction with, and use of, the landscapes over the past 12,000 years. Over this period, the landscape has changed—from tundra, to woodland, to prairie. This presentation will describe how archaeologists reconstruct the past environment to understand the complex interaction of humans and their surroundings though time.
