The archaeobotany of Peelo. 3. Iron Age and Roman period
In the third report on the archaeobotany of Peelo the floral remains recovered from settlement traces excavated on the parcels designated as Haverland and Kleuvenveld are discussed. The crop plants recorded agree with those from other Iron Age and Roman period settlement sites in Drenthe. One of the Kleuvenveld samples provided evidence for the collecting of acorns, probably for human consumption. In the final section a survey of the total Peelo plant record, covering the period of c. 800 BC to the 17th/18th century AD, is presented.
