Abstract

A pollen diagram from upland blanket peat on Featherbed Moss, Derbyshire, is briefly compared with previously published pollen diagrams from the southern Pennines, and a dating framework established from seven radiocarbon dates covering the time period 735 B.C. to A.D. 1459. Datings prior to 735 B.C. are tentatively extrapolated from the Leash Fen datings of Hicks (1971). The rate of peat accumulation is discussed in relation to the macroscopic plant remains, and it is concluded that rates of accumulation cannot reliably be deduced from the stratigraphy.
