    Project Details

    Description

    At a crossroads between Asia, Australia and the Pacific, our project recognizes Sulawesi as critical to understanding the human history of our region over the past 50,000 years. Sulawesi is strategically positioned to test competing models of initial modern human expansion, and subsequent trajectories of cultural change and interaction. The project will also produce multiple data sets for reconstructing palaeoclimate; data which will allow us to test projections for future climate, making a significant contribution to the National Research Priority goal of responding to climate change and variability.
