Dr. Tymon de Haas
dr. Mans Schepers
, together with a group of international colleagues, edited a Special Issue on reclaimed wetlands:
Journal of Wetland Archaeology, Volume 22, Issue 1-2 (2022), ‘Between reclamation and restoration: the archaeology, historical ecology and future development of reclaimed wetland landscapes.’
the editorial can be found here.
The papers in this special issue explore the archaeology and historical ecology of wetland environments in various parts of Europe and northern America. These environments all have in common that they have been reclaimed at one or multiple moments in their history, and that these reclamations have shaped the subsequent development of the landscape and environment.
Besides showing the historical depth and variability of wetland reclamation, the papers also reflect upon the need for wetland environments globally to be restored in order to combat two of the key challenges of the Anthropocene – climate change and biodiversity declines.
This is the contribution by dr.Tymon de Haas and dr. Mans Schepers, in which they compare the diachronic development of two reclaimed wetland landscapes in the Netherlands (de Onlanden in Groningen) and Italy (the Pontine Plain):
