A sediment core from the submerged peats exposed in the estuary of the River Clettwr, near Borth, West Wales. Estuarine silts and clays are overlain by terrestrial peats, the base of which date to c. 5800 years ago. The pollen record from the core shows the transition from a salt-marsh environment to alder carr

Pollen analysis can provide valuable insight into vegetational history, climatic reconstruction and historic and prehistoric interactions between people and landscape.

At present pollen analysis/reporting is subcontracted to external specialists. However, we do offer a pollen slide preparation service.
