Brief description At a crossroads between India, Australia and the Pacific, our project recognizes western mainland Southeast Asia as critical to understanding the human history of our region over the past 50,000 years. Thailand and Myanmar are strategically positioned to test competing models of initial modern human expansion, and subsequent trajectories of cultural change and interaction. The project will produce multiple data sets for reconstructing palaeoclimate; data which will allow us to test projections for future climate, making a significant contribution to the National Research Priority goal of responding to climate change and variability.
