New Publication in Vegetation History and Archaeobotany

Published: 1 November 2013
Publication in VHA

Dr Michael Grant is co-author on a new paper published in the international journal Vegetation History and Archaeobotany, entitled "The European Modern Pollen Database (EMPD) project."


This paper presents new 500 year interval palaeogeographic models for Britain, Ireland and the North West French coast from 11000 cal. BP to present. These models are used to calculate the varying rates of inundation for different geographical zones over the study period. This allows for consideration of the differential impact that Holocene sea-level rise had across space and time, and on past societies. In turn, consideration of the limitations of the models helps to foreground profitable areas for future research.
