Climate and History: Cultures in the 22nd century AD - Talk in Nuremberg, 18 Oct 2017

On Wednesday, 18 October 2017, I will give a presentation at the Society Society for Natural History (NHG) in Nuremberg on the Crisis of the civilisations in Antiquity around the 22nd century AD. At this time, the Old Kongdom and the Akkad Empire collapsed. Climatological data show a drought that affected manz parts of the World from North Africa to India and China. What happened to the climate, and how did it affect civilisations?

The presentation is in German and will start at 19.30 in the Katharinensaal of Nuremberg's City Library, Am Katharinenkloster 6.
