Abstract
Spore and pollen analyses were performed at 1cm intervals on a 21cm-long monolith (UR3-M7) extracted from the peaty terrace around the archaeological site. We focused on the UR3-M7 sample because organic matter (OM) accumulated earlier in the sampled point, at about 3030 cal. yr BP. For each level, 2 cm3 of sediment was processed following the procedures of Faegri and Iversen (1989) and Lavoie (2001). A Eucalyptus globulus pollen suspension of known volume and concentration was added to each sample to calculate pollen. At least 500 pollen grains of terrestrial vascular plants were counted for each sample. Pollen and spore identification followed Richard (1970, 1...
