Macrobotany: 2010 Aims

July 9, 2010


Macrobotanical remains, consisting of seeds, fruits and wood charcoal will be collected in the trenches and in the sieves, and will be identified.


The aim of the research is to reconstruct the former environment and to document the exploitation of that environment by the inhabitants of the site for food and as a source of wood.


Careful collection of the botanical macroremains in the trench and through sieving with the sieving and flotation machine is followed by sorting and partial identification of the material. Enigmatic specimens are set aside for export and identification through comparison with the more extensive reference collections in Belgium.
