Archaeological Institute of America president gives lecture on climate change

“Archaeology, Climate Change and Human Society, or How the Past Can Help Us Understand the Present” will be the  subject of Professor Andrew M.T. Moore, current president of the Archaeological Institute of America, on Saturday, Nov. 12, at 2 p.m., at the Bruce Museum, One Museum Drive, Greenwich.

Professor  Moore will focus on his excavations at the early village of Abu Hureyra in Syria  where the inception of farming  was a significant episode of climate change.
