Abstract [en]

The project Pre-Modern Coastal Environments has as its objective the studyof local resource use in selected coastal regions along the Baltic Sea. Thestudy’s main purpose is to determine the correlation between the effects ofhuman activities on the environment and the effects of naturally occurringenvironmental change. This will be achieved by using case studies focussingon the elasticity and survival capacity of specific coastal societies in easternSweden and western Estonia. The project will study settlement patterns,trade and industry, in relation to changes in the physical environment in thecontext of offshore displacement, climate changes, and changes in marinebiota. The project is a multidisciplinary cooperative effort of six researcherswho represent the disciplines of history, archaeology, human geography andphysical geography.
