Descriptions of the ancient landscape by these and other cultures, Australian, for instance, ascribe it as resulting from the action of powerful forces often in zoomorphic form. ), and it was only made more habitable by time and heroic figures such as the Hero Twins of Dine´ cosmology of the American Southwest. Today, most geologists view the Earth’s surface is a transient feature changing in a kaleidoscopic fashion through eons. This was not the case for many earth scientists into the early-to-mid-twentieth century (Frankel 2012).

Chamberlin in the US Midwest (Penck and Bruckner 1909). While presented as confirmation of the uniformitarianism principle (Tarbuck and Lutgens 1984), it was perceived, at that time as anything but. Lyell’s postulated uniformity of the Earth’s processes from the beginning to “today” (1833, 1840) had no room for glacial theory (Hsu˝ 1995). To make room for recent (Pleistocene) glaciations, Agassiz, with the help of Lyell’s mentor, William Buckland, took Lyell to glacial moraines within two miles of his home.

1955). In the mid-twentieth century, in the United States, the use of geological methods at the Midland site by Wendorf and his co-workers, Claude Albritton, Alex Krieger, and John Miller, in the 1950s, set an important and enduring example of how geology and archaeology buttressed each other to mutual advantage (Wendorf et al. 1955). Karl Butzer is generally recognized as one of the first, in the mid-twentieth century, to integrate geology and archeology (Butzer 1971; Hassan 1979). Gladfelter proposed a definition for geoarchaeology in 1977.
