Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document Arnold responds to the article by Raab and Larson (1997; eHRAF document number 17). She points out that no new archaeological data is presented that supports their contention that drought alone caused all the cultural changes that occurred between A.D. 1150-1300. Arnold argues, rather, that multiple factors such as drought, high population density, high surface sea temperature, “technological innovation, and human agency,” are better able to explain the complex changes that occurred in the Channel Islands region during the Transitional Period.
