A recent article in the special issue of Quaternary Science Reviews by Adam Izdebski, titled, "Realising consilience: How better communication between archaeologists, historians and natural scientists can transform the study of past climate change in the Mediterranean" digs deeper into this dilemma.
Access the Quaternary Science Reviews special issue, titled "Mediterranean Holocene Climate, Environment and Human Societies", which emerged from a PAGES-supported meeting in Greece in 2014, here.
And read the personal accounts of natural scientist and special issue editor Karin Holmgren, archeologist Erika Weiberg and historian Izdebski in this excellent blog article from Future Earth.
