The Mesolithic Period in Cornwall

  title={The Mesolithic Period in Cornwall},
  author={P. D. R. Berridge and Allison Roberts},
In a control device for quick angle adjustment of a rearview mirror for a vehicle of the present invention, a reversible switch is connected in the forward direction only when an operational switch for quick angle adjustment is operated after a shift lever is displaced to a reverse gear position. This rotates a quick angle adjusting motor to tilt a mirror angle of the mirror assembly to a reverse position. The mirror angle does not change automatically to the reverse position when the reverse…

Geochemical and palynological signals for palaeoenvironmental change in south west England
This thesis evaluates the utility of a geochemical technique for the investigation of paiaeoenvironmental change in south west England. The method, EDMA (Energy Dispersive X-ray Micro Analysis), is a
Human-environmental relations on Bodmin Moor during the Holocene
Human-Environment Relations on Bodmin Moor During the Holocene by Benjamin R.Gearey This thesis describes palaeoenvironmental investigations on Bodmin Moor aimed at determining the timing, nature and
Landscapes of Stone: Contextualizing Greenstone Working and Lithics from Clodgy Moor, West Penwith, Cornwall
Between 2004 and 2011 Graham Hill and Dave Edwards plotted nearly eight thousand prehistoric artefacts from ploughed fields across the Clodgy Moor area of West Penwith. In 2011 a project was carried
Grey waters bright with Neolithic argonauts? Maritime connections and the Mesolithic–Neolithic transition within the ‘western seaways’ of Britain, c. 5000–3500 BC
Careful examination of the probable natural conditions for travel in the North Sea and Irish Sea during the late Mesolithic are here combined with the latest radiocarbon dates to present a new
Challenges in sample processing within radiocarbon dating and their impact in 14C-dates-as-data studies
Abstract For decades, researchers have employed sets of radiocarbon dates to reconstruct trends in ancient human populations. The overarching assumption in this analysis is that the frequency of
Examining the relationship between environmental change and human activities at the dryland-wetland interface during the Late Upper Palaeolithic and Mesolithic in Southeast England
This thesis investigates environmental change across the Late Glacial and Early Holocene boundary in southeast England, and places these results within their archaeological setting. This has


Summary. This paper presents some preliminary observations based on the microwear analysis of 173 artefacts from the mesolithic site of Star Carr, near Scarborough, Yorkshire. One hundred discrete
On a probable Palæolithic Floor at Prah Sands (Cornwall)
About 7 miles cast of Penzance a shallow bay lies between a rocky headland of slate and elvan on the one side, and the Godolphin granite on the other. Into this bay sand, principally shell-sand, has
Summary. While most microwear analyses of flint artefacts have involved formal retouched tools, this paper concentrates on unretouched blades from 4 South Scandinavian Mesolithic sites, seeking to
The Earlier Stone Age Settlement Of Scandinavia
During the Ice Age Scandinavia was submerged under thick ice sheets, and it was only in the subsequent warmer conditions, as the ice receded, that colonisation by plants, animals and men became
Excavations At Star Carr: An Early Mesolithic Site at Seamer Near Scarborough, Yorkshire
This book was originally published in 1954. Grahame Clark's excavations at Star Carr from 1949 to 1951 have long been regarded as a model of how archaeological investigation should be conducted. In
Prehistoric Sites on the North Cornish Coast between Newquay and Perranporth
The following paper is to record certain prehistoric remains in an area already famous for the seventh-century oratory of St. Pieran. Several years ago I commenced a rough survey of the whole
The mesolithic period in South and Western Britain
A detailed study has been made of the Mesolithic material in southern and Western Britain and a quantity of new evidence has been recorded from west England and Wales, by means of research in the
Late-Devensian and Flandrian Vegetational History of Bodmin Moor, Cornwall
A largely palynological study of new exposures of lake and mire sediments from Bodmin Moor, Cornwall, together with radiocarbon dating of the polliniferous deposits has allowed, for the first time in
Mesolithic Age in Britain*
  • Nature
IN 1926 the Royal Anthropological Institute held an exhibition illustrating the microlithic industries of Britain, to which all who were then known to be interested and engaged in forming collections
