The Use and Economic Value of Manna grass (Glyceria) in Poland from the Middle Ages to the Twentieth Century
Manna grass (mainly but not exclusively G. fluitans) used to be widely gathered in most lowland areas of the present territory of Poland and western and southern Belarus. It had an important functionExpand
The environmental and cultural contexts of the late Iron Age and medieval settlement in the Mazurian Lake District, NE Poland: combined palaeobotanical and archaeological data
Pollen analysis of sediments from three lakes and analysis of plant macroremains including charcoal from archaeological sites in the Mazurian Lake District provide new data for the reconstruction ofExpand
Ancient DNA typing indicates that the “new” glume wheat of early Eurasian agriculture is a cultivated member of the Triticum timopheevii group
Triticum timopheevii can no longer be looked upon as a minor crop, restricted to western Georgia, but instead must be viewed as a significant component of prehistoric Eurasian agriculture, with implications for the understanding of the origins of agriculture in southwest Asia. Expand
Useful plants from the site Lutomiersk–Koziówki near Łódź (central Poland) with special reference to the earliest find of Xanthium strumarium L. seeds in Europe
The charred seeds from Lutomiersk–Koziowki are currently the oldest radiocarbon-dated finds in Europe and can reflect distant contacts of the settlers mostly with south-eastern Europe although eastern routes cannot be excluded as well. Expand
A multi-proxy reconstruction from Lutomiersk–Koziówki, Central Poland, in the context of early modern hemp and flax processing
During an archaeological investigation at Lutomiersk–Koziowki in central Poland, deposits indicative of an old rettery from the 16th–17th century AD were discovered. The artifacts found in theExpand
Spatial and temporal patterns in Neolithic and Bronze Age agriculture in Poland based on the stable carbon and nitrogen isotopic composition of cereal grains
Abstract In this study the stable nitrogen (δ15N) and carbon (δ13C) isotopic compositions of carbonized cereal grains from 18 archaeological sites in Poland, dating from the Early Neolithic to theExpand
New AMS 14C dates track the arrival and spread of broomcorn millet cultivation and agricultural change in prehistoric Europe
An extensive programme of AMS-dating of charred broomcorn millet grains from 75 prehistoric sites in Europe provides a new, high-resolution chronological framework for this key agricultural development that likely contributed to far-reaching changes in lifestyle in late 2nd millennium bc Europe.

Plant macroremains from an early Neolithic site in eastern Kuyavia, central Poland
The relatively high proportion of small-grain grasses, usually interpreted as traces of fodder, together with the scarcity of crop remains at the Wolica Nowa site, suggests that the site was connected more with animal husbandry than with agriculture. Expand
Benefits and weaknesses of radiocarbon dating of plant material as reflected by Neolithic archaeological sites from Poland, Slovakia and Hungary
Abstract Radiocarbon dating of the plant material is important for chronology of archaeological sites. Therefore, a selection of suitable plant samples is an important task. The contributionExpand
Plant materials used as temper in the oldest Neolithic pottery from south-eastern Poland
Plant materials were frequently used as a temper as an important part of the process of making pottery. However, identification of the presence of tempering material and its taxonomic composition areExpand
