Abstract: Waterlogged deposits were investigated in order to provide detailed information about the ancient environment by the analysis of pollen, insect and plant macrofossil remains. Plant macrofossils are likely to be derived from near the water course, so together with the insect remains may be used to define the local conditions and vegetation. This information will be considered with that from the pollen which may be derived from both nearby and further afield, in order to contribute to conclusions about the wider area surrounding the site. The plant macrofossils were analysed and provided evidence of the wetland and waterside vegetation, with some areas of open grassland together with stands of alder trees suggested by remains in the later sample.
