  • Unity College Fishbowl Series. Jessica Herlich:Archaeobotany and the Study of Anthropogenic Landscapes and Human-Environmental Relationships. Noon in HW 212 at Unity College. Dr. Herlich is an assistant professor of sustainability studies at Unity College. Through archaeobotany, or the study of ancient plant remains, archaeologists explore past human-environmental relationships, landscape management, foodways, and ecological changes over time. Archaeobotanists can utilize different types of evidence (including macrobotanical and microbotanical remains) to answer questions related to people, plants, and landscape use in the past and how these relationships may inform a more sustainable present. In this talk, I will discuss archaeobotanical and archaeological research that I have conducted in Tidewater Virginia at Algonquian sites and questions that I have investigated pertaining to historical ecology and taskscapes. I will also present future research questions based on archaeological sites and the archaeological record in Maine.
