Sedimentation and preservation of the prehistoric lakeside site Järvensuo in Humppila, SW Finland c. 3500-500 calBCE

Description

With this pre-project study, I aim to further our understanding about the history of a prehistoric settlement site (Järvensuo in Humppila, SW Finland, c. 3500–500 BCE) situated in a dynamic wetland landscape. The unusual preservation conditions for organic materials under humid, saturated sediments yield valuable sources for investigating past populations and their environment. The careful analysis of the existing materials will be thoroughly analysed, catalogued, and reported within this study, which will form the basis for the assessment of research potential and state of preservation of the site for the planning of the implementation project and archaeological fieldwork.
