Welcome to the ARCAVE research project web page

Well-preserved cave sites provide continuous archives of human and environmental records in deep time. The ARCAVE project compiles multi-proxy timeseries data to reconstruct human and environmental co-evolution from the "cathedral cave" at Træna island, Arctic Norway

The project is led and financed by The Norwegian Institute for Cultural Heritage Research.
