Several pre-selected sub-samples taken from prehistoric features at New Laund Farm, Whitewell, were submitted by Rick Peterson of UCLAN in January 2015, for pollen assessment, assessment of plant remains, and charcoal identification. The samples were taken as part of an investigation of prehistoric use of the limestone landscapes around the southern fringes of the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, known as the Sheltering Memory project, which has involved several seasons of fieldwork, commencing in 2011. The primary objective of the palaeoenvironmental study, undertaken between January and May 2015, was to assess the potential of the deposits within the features for pollen, plant remains and charcoal preservation.
