HEALTH: A new study suggests the soundscape could have affected the mental health of 19th-century settlers. by James Gaines July 22, 2022

These details caught the imagination of Alex D. Velez, a paleoanthropologist with State University of New York at Oswego who studies the evolution of human hearing, and made him wonder: is there any truth to this idea? Now, a new paper by Velez published in Historical Archaeology suggests this eerie soundscape—the silence and the howling wind—could indeed have contributed to mental illness in settlers. It’s not much of a leap: research with modern subjects has shown that what we hear can exacerbate not only sleep, stress, and mental health problems, but even cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes.


HISTORY: Under Joseph Stalin’s regime in 1944, Soviet Russia carried out a full-scale campaign to rid the Crimean Peninsula of its indigenous Tatar population. Around 200,000 people were deported from their homes and land, an estimated 8,000 of whom died en route to Central Asia.
