Palynology and Landuse Reconstruction at Tatton Park, Cheshire

Author(s): James Schoenwetter

Year: 1999


Sediment samples associated with a Mesolithic site on the shore of Tatton Mere contain pollen "downwashed" through the deposits since establishment of a soil on an aeolian dune that developed at the locale in Romano-British times. Application of the method suggested in Schoenwetter, 1990, "Method for the Application of Pollen Analysis in Landscape Archaeology," allows interpretation of the pollen sequence in terms of changes in local landuse. The result is wholly consistant with the sequence of landuses recorded for the locale since the 11th century. Rejected for European publication by reviewers.
