Allaby the meeting will be held the Royal Society at conference centre at Chicheley Hall, Buckinghamshire (, between
Monday 15 May – Tuesday 16 May.

Global warming following the last glacial maximum led to the global submergence of vast, populated landscapes. These largely unexplored lands hold a unique record of habitation linked to climate change. Frequently inaccessible, and unamenable to conventional analysis, this meeting brings together experts across historical and scientific disciplines to identify new analytical methods and the contemporary relevance of these lost lands.
