Online lecture on Confronting Climate Change at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Butrint in Albania

18:30-19.30 GMT

An extensive archaeological site in southern Albania, Butrint was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage Site List in 1992. The excellent preservation of the surviving monuments, below-ground archaeology, and the surrounding landscape reveals an intricate history of human interaction with the environment, dating from the Bronze Age to the Ottoman era.

This online lecture organised by Europa Nostra UK will explore the pressures that such heritage sites face, both from modern development and urban expansion, as well as climate change and habitat alteration.

The presenter, Richard Hodges, is President Emeritus of the American University of Rome and former Professor of Archaeology at the University of East Anglia; he was formerly the Williams Director of the Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, USA. His latest publication is Travels with an Archaeologist: Finding a Sense of Place.
