POLLEN ANALYSIS The lake selected for coring is located 500 m south of Oakes Bay 1 archeological site. An 80-cm long core was extracted from the peaty margin of the lake. Loss-on-ignition (LOI) and pollen and spore analyses were performed at 2-cm intervals on this core. For each level, 2 cm3 of sediment was processed following the procedures of Faegri and Iversen (1989) and Lavoie (2001) (i.e., chemical treatments using 10% KOH, HCl, and HF, and acetolysis).
