Characterization and palaeoecological significance of archaeological charcoal assemblages during Late and Post-Glacial Phases in southern France

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Archaeological sites at Abeurador and Font-Juvénal have produced extensive charcoal-rich horizons. The results of the charcoal analysis, based on the identification of woody species from anatomical features, contribute to the elaboration of plain phases within the development of vegetation in southern France. They are presented here in a new diagram and are interpreted as four major vegetation phases from 11,000 C 14 yr B.P. to the recent past. In order to interpret the palaeoecological significance of the charcoal assemblages the AA. have used multivariate analysis
