VUURSTEENVINDPLAATSEN; SPOREN VAN JAGER-VERZAMELAARS EN VROEGE LANDBOUWERS IN HET NOORD-NEDERLANDSE LANDSCHAP
The archaeological record of Palaeolithic and Mesolithic sites in the northern Netherlands consists mainly of surface collections of flint and stone artefacts. Only relatively few sites have been extensively exeavaled and analyzed. The quality of the remaining thousands of sites is rapidly deteriorating and urgent action is needed. Recently the project 'Vuursteenvindplaatsen; sporen van jager-verzamelaars en vroege landbouwers in het Noord-Nederlandse landschap' was initiated by the Groningen Jnstitute of Archaeology. The main aim of the project is to assess the state of p reservation of Stone Age remains in the northern Netherlands. One major aspect of the project is to explore the potential of 'wet sites' in the northern Netherlands.
