The environment is possibly one of the most pressing concerns facing society in the 21st century. The environmental debate is hugely complex with cultural, social, economic, moral, political and scientific dimensions all interacting. A Key to this debate is Environmental History which provides a valuable long-term perspective on environmental change.
Historians are now providing fascinating insights into the relations between humans and their environments in the past. Throughout history, humans have been affected by the natural environment, but they have also been agents of environmental change. This website explores the ways in which people have interacted with their environments in the past.
The site presents topics as wide ranging as public health, conservation, smoke abatement, pollution history, historical climatology, and generally the historical interaction between culture and nature. The emphasis of the site is on Europe and Australia but placed in a global perspective. This is reflected in the range of articles, bibliographies and other material that this website has to offer.
