Abstract:
A programme of coring and pollen analysis was commissioned to reconstruct the ecological history of Llyn Llech Owain lake (SN 568152). This short report presents the preliminary results of the analyses from the upper part of the profile (above 4m) where there appears to be evidence of human activity. Above the level of the core representing the mid-Holocene 'elm decline' there are indications of significant changes in the local and regional vegetation that may indicate human activity from the Neolithic that accelerated in the Bronze Age. This includes potential evidence for pastoral activity where openings in the vegetation were maintained through animal grazing and the presence of microscopic charcoal which could be anthropogenic or from natural fires.
