Another interesting soil pit!
An important part of the research in the Ecrins inlcludes the assessment of environmental change and human management of the landscape. This year a series of pits were excavated around the archaeological sites in order to take samples for sedimentary analyses and also for the collection of charcoal. This will allow us to compliment the palynological research with specific evidence for local use of, and impact on the vegetation.
