Abstract Most botanical remains found in archaeological sites are preserved by charring. This material, when excavated from ordinary occupation debris, often represents the remnants of ancient fuel use. Over much of west Asia the primary ancient fuels were wood and dung, which serve as a proxy for woodland cover, animal diet, and by further inference, land-use patterns. This contribution shows how archaeobotanical data can be used to reconstruct agropastoral systems in the different rainfall… Expand
