Abstract and Keywords

This chapter examines the future of wetland archaeology in the twenty-first century, focusing on the impact of climate change. It first describes the impact of climate change on wetlands using the most recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reports, and then considers the kinds of practical and political responses required from wetland archaeologists. Finally, the chapter discusses how we can develop an archaeological theory of wetlands that is fit for purpose in an era of climate change.

Keywords: wetland archaeology, climate change, archaeological theory, wetlands
