Critical outline of the major physical features used in environmental archaeology for the reconstruction of quaternary climate

  • Stanley I. Okoroafor


Climates in themselves are naturally somewhat elusive. Attempts to reconstruct such can sometimes be quite challenging. Different fronts have been taken by various experts around the world to determine climatic variations over time. That of Quaternary is shallow in the perspective of time and ‘context’ and thus more exposed to the vulnerability of obliteration and evasiveness. However, the dogged efforts of palaeoclimatic and related studies environmentalists especially the environmental archaeologists provide good hindsight with which the reconstruction is driven to some levels of objectivity. The major physical features of achieving this are on the strength of environmental sustainability critically outlined here, with a view to maintaining the equilibrium of the understanding and extending the frontiers of our knowledge in this regard.
