Brigitte Talon and her Team Digging a Soil Pit on the Faravel Plateau

A series of pits were dug around this area. Samples were taken, and charcoal will be extracted in the lab', identified and dated. This work allows us to identify the extent and nature of the forest and other vegetation in the past. The comparison of these results with our pollen diagrams permits a detailed characterisation of vegetation change in the area.
