Abstract

The pollen records from two sites in Fife, eastern Scotland, reveal that hemp cultivation was, during medieval and later historical times, an important component in the local farming economy. The spatial and temporal variation evident from the palaeoecological record may have resulted from differences in land and labour availability, market factors, or, indirectly, climatic change. In the absence of detailed long-term documentary evidence for hemp cultivation in Scotland, it is suggested that pollen analyses from well-chosen sites can provide a comprehensive data source
