Abstract

The aim of this work is to describe the paleoenvironment and cultural landscape near the archaeological site of “Vasca Inferiore di Noceto” (an artificial basin) in about one century during the Bronze Age (1420-1320 BC). The study of the ecological-floristic characters revealed by pollen analysis (pollen, spore of Monilophytes s.l. and Briophytes s.l. and nonpollen palynomorphs–NPPs) allowed to distinguish the past biodiversity and ecological successions that are typical of natural or human-induced wet environments. This research provides new biological information to an archaeological context, discovered in 2004, through a detailed analysis of plant cover near the site. The low forest cover and signs of human activity (with evidence from Corylus, cereals and synanthropic plants) are at the base of pollen spectra. Data permit to investigate the complex relationships between this basin and human activity, and the human impact on landscape.
