From renowned archeologist Brian Fagan, the classic history of how climate change transformed Europe and the world

The Little Ice Age tells the story of the turbulent, unpredictable, and often very cold years of modern European history, revealing how the 500-year cold snap that began in the fourteenth century affected historical events and what it means for today's global warming. Renowned archaeologist Brian Fagan shows how the increasing cold influenced familiar events, from Norse exploration to the settlement of North America to the Industrial Revolution. This is a fascinating book for anyone interested in history, climate, and how they interact.
Brian Fagan is Emeritus Professor of Anthropology at the University of California, Santa Barbara. A former Guggenheim Fellow, he has written many internationally acclaimed popular books about archaeology, including The Little Ice Age, The Great Warming, and The Long Summer. He lives in Santa Barbara, California.
