Connecting the historical to the natural sciences is an as of yet novel approach to reconstructing the past, which has gained traction in the past few years, often stopping short of complete interdisciplinarity due to the structural and methodological gap between the sciences. Attempting to bridge this disciplinary gap by assembling leading experts of their respective fields in Basel, the international conference "Climate Science & Ancient History. Decoding «Natural» and «Human» Archives" (27.-28.11.2018) featured 15 contributions by ancient historians, classicists, theologians, climate scientists, environmental historians, and paleoclimatologists. Issues discussed were wide-ranging, from reconstructing the climate in ancient regions via climatological findings and literary sources, to analyzing ice cores and lake sediments to retrace events taking place across the ancient world.
