The demand for innovative solutions to pressing ecological and social problems is on a constant rise. Ancient technologies provide extensive, yet underutilized opportunities to help solve such problems.

The emerging research field of Ancient Technologies in Modern Contexts addresses these opportunities and the potential of ancient technologies and knowledge as sustainable solutions in modern contexts, especially in contexts of climate change adaptation. The areas comprise water supply, agriculture, architecture, materials and crafts.
