William P Adderley
I am geoarchaeologist with interests in both environmental history and pre-history. My academic research has always had an emphasis on socially and geographically marginal people and environments. With formal training in both chemistry and soil science I have a special interest in understanding the management of environments through periods of change, whether through the arrival of humans into an otherwise pristine environment or the manner in which people who are farming respond to external changes in their environment. This consideration of the sustainability of societies in marginal, or extreme, environments takes me to a wide variety of field locations.
