The Present Environment a Geographic Summary

Part of the Interdisciplinary Contributions to Archaeology book series (IDCA)


This chapter describes the present environment of Europe: topography, climate, and characteristic associations of plants, animals, and soils. It introduces the reader to the geography of the continent, develops the environmental background for the societies of the last 9000 years, and provides a point of departure against which we can compare the environments of the more distant past.
