Abstract

Stratigraphical investigations at Holcroft and Lindow Mosses are described and the results of pollen analyses are presented. The organic deposits date from the Atlantic Period (Zone VIIA) and the lower part of each moss records reedswamp, succeeded by carr woodland and Sphagnum bog. The main upper part of each pollen analysis shows episodes of forest clearance and regeneration which are related to the archaeology and settlement history of the area.
