CPAT Winter Lectures – Searching for the Mesolithic in Ceredigion
The Mesolithic record from Ceredigion is sparse when compared to that of neighbouring Pembrokeshire. A number of factors are likely to be contributing to this pattern including collector bias, landscape change and modern land use as well as the use of landscape by these final hunter-foragers in the early Holocene.
A new cross-boarder project, Portalis, has been set up to examine this record and we report in this talk on some of the preliminary findings from this work.
Dr. Samantha Brummage and Prof. Martin Bates presented their search for Mesolithic Ceredigion as part of the Portalis Project.
