Biomarker of the Anthropocene – the results are in!

As part of Science Week 2018, the Association for Environmental Archaeology asked what is the best Biomarker of the Anthropocene?

The winner of the popular vote was wheat, followed closely by the broiler chicken. Dung fungi came third and dung beetles in fourth position. We hope you enjoyed the discussions. Environmental archaeologists have lots to contribute to the debate concerning the Anthropocene, as has been demonstrated by these discussions.

The AEA Committee would like to thank everyone who took part, in particular our proposers.
