Abstract We discuss some recent trends in archaeological microfossil research, including approaches using multiple microfossil data sets (e.g. pollen, phytoliths, starches, and microscopic charcoal). We review eight types of microfossils, with reference to their physical characteristics, their uses in archaeology, and specific requirements for laboratory extraction and microscope viewing. Rather than presenting any single processing protocol, in order to assist individual researchers or… CONTINUE READING
