This talk will look at the damage climate change is doing to prehistoric and historic archaeological site across the Arctic, and the ways archaeologists and northern communities are coping with this emerging problem. Starting with her own work at Etah, Greenland, arctic researcher Genevieve LeMoine will illustrate the various ways sites are being destroyed, and the efforts to save them.

Genevieve LeMoine has been doing archaeological fieldwork in the Canadian Arctic and Greenland for over 30 years. Her research has taken her from the Mackenzie Delta all the way to northern Ellesmere Island and Northwestern Greenland. She is curator or The Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum and Arctic Studies Center, Bowdoin College.

This lecture is sponsored by Falmouth Memorial Library and Merrill Memorial Library as one of the Camden Conference Community Events leading up to the 34th annual Camden Conference, the Geopolitics of the Arctic, a Region in Peril.
