African and Arabian climate change

An evening for Year 11, 12 & 13 pupils (& parents very welcome) that wanted to know more about what Geography has to offer at University.

Professor Simon Blockley gave a lecture on African and Arabian climate change (A Level focused content).  Royal Holloway colleagues then ran one workshop session on the archaeology of the area and another on linking archaeology to climate records using volcanic ash.  This evening also looked at the wider question of climate drivers on human dispersal.
