Abstract

Plaggic agriculture was the dominant land use system on Pleistocene sandy soils in Northwest Europe before the introduction of chemical fertilizers. In the today's landscape plaggic deposits are still recognizable as characteristic soils and landforms, related to this historical land use system. They are also important constituents of the soil archives in Northwest Europe. This study shows that (in contrast to traditional reconstructions of the genesis of plaggic anthrososls, based on palynology and radiocarbon dating), the OSL based age and sedimentation rate of plaggic deposits are accurate and reliable
