Welcome to our Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada project, Empire, Trees, and Climate in the North Atlantic: Towards Critical Dendro-Provenancing (2014-2016).
Our project brings together international scholars in the humanities and physical sciences to creatively combine historical research, dendro-provenancing (e.g. analysis of tree ring widths of historic buildings and shipwrecks), marine archaeology, and geo-visualization techniques to critically reconstruct the ‘socio-biophysical landscape’ (Lave et al. 2014) of the British North Atlantic.
