REMAINS of Greenland Project

Archaeological sites in Greenland represent an irreplaceable record of unusually well-preserved material remains covering over 4000 years of human history. Spectacular finds and surviving structures have provided many novel contributions to the understanding of our common cultural history. However, the fantastic archaeological records are now disappearing due to climate change. The research project REMAINS of Greenland has investigated the short and long-term net effects of climate change on the preservation of archaeological sites in the Nuuk region in Southwest Greenland.
