Unfortunately I have already booked to attend another conference on 10th May and so cannot come to the Archaeobotany Workshop. It does sound really interesting though - especially the discussion of the use of plantatt. I wonder if someone could post a summary of what is said in that discussion on the mailing list after the meeting?

Subject: Archaeobotany workshop at Worcester in May
As decided at the Archaeobotany Workshop meeting in London in November,
myself and Alan Clapham will host the next meeting at Worcestershire
Historic Environment and Archaeology Service in Worcester on Saturday 10th
The meeting will follow the normal format of discussion and presentation
of work in the morning and microscope session in the afternoon.
So far the following have offered to give presentations on their recent
Gemma Martin – A Bronze Age site at Pode Hole Quarry, Cambridgeshire
Alan Clapham – Clifton Quarry, Worcestershire: the pits!
And if time permits – Nick Daffern on the pollen from a possible flax-
Discussion themes suggested so far are:
· Dealing with samples processed by external organisations, and
analysis techniques (Gemma)
· The use of ‘Plantatt’ phytosociology scheme in archaeobotany is it
of use? (Alan Clapham)
· National Heritage Science Strategy (Allan Hall)
Could you let me know if there are any topics or results that you would
like to discuss?
As before, could we all bring food to share at lunchtime. Tea, coffee and
biscuits will be provided. Please let us know if you would like to attend,
and we look forward to seeing you in May.
