Abstract

Pollen and macroscopic charcoal have been analysed from a sedimentary sequence representing approximately 6100 years from a site within Wollemi National Park, a part of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area. The aim was to examine the prehistoric interrelationships between vegetation, fire and human activity. It is possible that the change in fire activity from 3 ka represented an alteration to Aboriginal management strategies associated with an increasing population and/or the increased risk of conflagrations in an ENSO-dominated climate
