Summary

A sediment sample was collected from the Holland Road Pit Site for pollen analysis. An OSL date of 116,000 years was obtained on gray sediments containing gravel that is overlain by beige sand. The till above the gray sediment is probably a weathered version of the black till from the Rosslyn cut-bank that yielded a radiocarbon date of about 42,000 cal BP.
