The Himalaya, past, present and future

Professor Mark Aldenderfer (University of California, Merced and Leverhulme Visiting Professor, MIASU)

Himalayan Migrations: past and present

High mountains are at once forbidding and welcoming — they appear impenetrable but yet are surprisingly permeable. Reflecting on genetics, paleoclimatology, and anthropology, archaeologist Mark Aldenderfer describes how people over the millennia have faced up to the challenges of moving through and around the High Himalayas.
