Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



A radiocarbon-dated pollen record near the Boylston Street Fishweir site in Boston, provides a regional and local record of vegetation changes from the middle Holocene to present. The stratigraphy begins about 5630 B.P. Correlation of this stratigraphy with archaeological data collected from 500 Boylston Street indicates that between 4700 and 3700 yr B.P., a number of fence-like algnments, were probably placed within existing channels and/or along shorelines to capture fish and other marine animals as they moved with the tidal flow
