Historical climatology is the interdisciplinary research field that reconstructs past climates and weather and their societal impacts on the basis of written and physical records produced by people. This issue of Past Global Changes Magazine presents papers on the current state of research in several world regions, as well as on new methods and the analysis of new sources in the field. It is a product of the PAGES Climate Reconstruction and Impacts from the Archives of Societies (CRIAS) working group.
