ArchaeoGLOBE: 'Crowdsourcing 10,000 Years of Land Use'

Michele W. Berger writes for Penn Today, “More than 250 archaeologists from around the world contributed their knowledge to ArchaeoGLOBE, an effort to better understand the prevalence of agriculture, pastoralism, and hunting and gathering at different points in human history.” 

ArchaeoGLOBE is “a crowdsourced database that includes more than 700 entries from 255 archaeologists around the world. For each location, researchers rated the prevalence of land-use types—agriculture, pasturing herd animals, and hunting and gathering—for 10 time periods between 1850 CE and 10,000 years ago, when modern agriculture began.”
