The making of the European Mediterranean landscape
« on: September 26, 2012, 07:24:42 PM »
Oliver Rackham gave an inspiring talk at the 2012 meeting of the MGS Portugal Branch. Prof Rackham is the authority on the region's changing landscapes, as well as being a most lively and entertaining speaker. Rosie Peddle has now arranged for you to be able to hear his complete talk, accompanied by all the slides he showed - well worth watching. To see and hear this, click here - and remember to turn on your computer's sound! There's also a separate short video introduction you can see by clicking here.
Thanks for organising this, Rosie!

Really interesting and informative. Thank you for making this available to the rest of us.
