Meet Dr. Roseanne Chambers
I believe that learning about our natural world helps us to become more thoughtful and deliberate global citizens.
As a geologist and enthusiastic traveler, I am continuously curious about how our environment shapes human history. I am fascinated by the Andes Mountains and the sophisticated ancient cultures that flourished in this dynamic landscape, and these are the focus of my recent research.
Upcoming Book: The Monumental Andes
For thousands of years, ancient cultures arose and thrived in the rugged Andes Mountains of South America, culminating in the achievements of the Inca Empire — the largest, grandest, and last of the ancient civilizations of the Americas.
The environment of the Andes, with mountainous terrain and frequent floods, droughts, earthquakes and erupting volcanoes, shaped these ancient cultures.
