Summary

Pollen and phytolith samples were examined from selected deposits at three

sites in France to examine recovery and state of preservation. La Tureau de

L'Abime is an Iron Age burial mound with an age of about 800 BC. Samples from

Uxeau represent part of a medieval moat or perimeter defense around the fortified

priory of Uxeau during the tenth or eleventh century AD. Bois de Busserole is

a well-preserved late Gaulish/early Gallo-Roman site probably occupied between

the first century BC and the first or second century AD.
