Plant macrofossils

Plant macrofossil analysis is the study of plant remains such as seeds, fruits and other plant parts linked to archaeological remains and environments, usually preserved in charred or subfossil state. 

By studying plant macrofossils, we get an insight into prehistoric plant use, food traditions, cultivation, trade, animal husbandry, rituals and other parts of everyday life.
