Coastal Adaptation and Submerged Shell Middens

The DHSC Team is back in Denmark this month to undertake post-excavation work following the 2018 season of underwater excavation. Preliminary results from our team’s analysis is looking promising!

This follows on the recent #OpenAccess publication in the JICA which was published last month and which describes and discusses the 2017 DHSC Work. That article is freely available via: https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/15564894.2019.1584135
