IMPACT OF TECTONIC ACTIVITY ON ANCIENT CIVILIZATIONS: RECURRENT SHAKEUPS, TENACITY, RESILIENCE, AND CHANGE.
Año: 2019 p. 2
Interplay between the earth?s natural geodynamic processes and human society is a genuine truth that has been drastically evidenced by spectacular impacts of natural disasters on affected communities. In this context, Eric Force, a leading researcher on geoscience and archaeological sites, explores links between Earth´s active tectonic zones and derivate cultures of antique civilizations. His hypothesis announces tectonism plays a key cultural role in the human history, conditioning the distribution and development of known Great Ancient Civilizations (e.g., Mycenaean, Etruscan and Romans).
