Lesson Subject: “Over the river …”.
In the course of rivers, on the role of valleys in the development of human societies.
River valleys, especially the valley of the great rivers, were in ancient areas of shaping and development of civilization. Human groups in prehistory inhabited also valleys of smaller rivers, which was supported by significant geological and biodiversity of the valleys. Large positive impact of these areas for the development of human settlements is clearly visible in the research, including geoarchaeological research in Lodz region (http://explorersfestival.pl/).
