The second meeting of the Anthropocene Working Group (AWG) was held at the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research, University of Cambridge, on 24th and 25th November 2015. It took the form of a workshop with 12 members of the working group and numerous archaeologists from the Institute in lively conversation with each other. Discussion was focused on anthropogenic strata and matters of chronostratigraphy. The AWG was set up in 2009 to consider the case for formalizing the term ‘Anthropocene’ in the Geological Time Scale. The working group reports to the Subcommission on Quaternary Stratigraphy, which sits within the broader framework of the International Commission on Stratigraphy (ICS). Unusually for a working group of the ICS, it consists of researchers from a wide variety of Earth Sciences, including archaeology.
