Abstract

Pleistocene areas of red sediments and carbonized vegetation have in the past been interpreted as caused by fires of either natural or human origin. Some are associated with darkened mammoth and bird fossils, which have been considered as having been burned by early man. Reevaluation of these so-called " fire areas " by interdisciplinary investigations indicates that the above phenomena are the result of low-temperature (up to 100o C), non heating processes occurring in groundwater
