We studied the Early and early-Mid Holocene landscape at the site of Mondeval de Sora, VF1 (Belluno, N-E Italy), preserving one of the best archaeological records of the Dolomites for this time span. Charcoal analyses are related to sectors I and III located under a dolomite boulder at an altitude of 2,150 m a.s.l. Samples were systematically picked up through wet sieving all over the stratigraphic sequence during archaeological excavations. For our analysis we sub-sampled 414 charcoals from the estimated total number of ca. 300.000. The analyzed charcoal come from levels dating to the Sauveterrian and the Castelnovian. They are mainly constituted of larch/spruce, followed by pine, probably mugo pine, and by cembran pine. Broadleaves are rare and represented by green alder. The larch, is more represented than spruce confirming its ability to occupy higher altitudes. Cembran pine, is less represented with respect to larch and spruce.

Abstract

We studied the Early and early-Mid Holocene landscape at the site of Mondeval de Sora, VF1 (Belluno, N-E Italy), preserving one of the best archaeological records of the Dolomites for this time span. Charcoal analyses are related to sectors I and III located under a dolomite boulder at an altitude of 2,150 m a.s.l. Samples were systematically picked up through wet sieving all over the stratigraphic sequence during archaeological excavations. For our analysis we sub-sampled 414 charcoals from the estimated total number of ca. 300.000. The analyzed charcoal come from levels dating to the Sauveterrian and the Castelnovian. They are mainly constituted of larch/spruce, followed by pine, probably mugo pine, and by cembran pine. Broadleaves are rare and represented by green alder. The larch, is more represented than spruce confirming its ability to occupy higher altitudes. Cembran pine, is less represented with respect to larch and spruce.
