One key group that has been woven into the IAVCEI canvas is comprised of archeologists, anthropologists and sociologists. The human dimension of volcanic hazards is the focus of this book. A human dimension, so important to natural hazard mitigation, is now an important focus within the field of volcanology. The contributors of the thirteen chapters presented their work at the World Archeological Congress held in Washington, D. C. in 2003. These case studies were selected for publication to help us understand how human societies have coped with volcanic eruptions.

First Published 2007. Grattan, J. Living Under the Shadow. Popularist treatments of ancient disasters like volcanic eruptions have grossly overstated their capacity for death, destruction, and societal collapse. Contributors to this volume-from anthropology, archaeology, environmental studies, geology, and biology-show that human societies have been incredibly resilient and, in the long run, have often recovered remarkably well from wide scale disruption and significant mortality.

Popularist treatments of ancient disasters like volcanic eruptions have grossly overstated their capacity for death, destruction, and societal collapse. Contributors to this volume―from anthropology, archaeology, environmental studies, geology, and biology―show that human societies have been incredibly resilient and, in the long run, have often recovered remarkably well from wide scale disruption and significant mortality. They have often used eruptions as a trigger for environmental enrichment, cultural change, and adaptation. These historical studies are relevant to modern hazard management because they provide records for a far wider range of events and responses than have been recorded in written records, yet are often closely datable and trackable using standard archaeological and geological techniques. Contributors also show the importance of traditional knowledge systems in creating a cultural memory of dangerous locations and community responses to disaster. The global and temporal coverage of the research reported is impressive, comprising studies from North and Central America, Europe, Asia, and the Pacific, and ranging in time from the Middle Palaeolithic to the modern day.
