Journal Article
Swindles, G. T., Lawson, I. T., Matthews, I. P., Blaauw, M., Daley, T. J., Charman, D. J., …Armit, I. (2013). Centennial-scale climate change in Ireland during the Holocene. Earth-Science Reviews, 126, 300-320. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.earscirev.2013.08.012

We examine mid- to late Holocene centennial-scale climate variability in Ireland using proxy data from peatlands, lakes and a speleothem. A high degree of between-record variability is apparent in the proxy data and significant chronological uncertai... Read More about Centennial-scale climate change in Ireland during the Holocene.

Late Mesolithic and early Neolithic forest disturbance: a high resolution palaeoecological test of human impact hypotheses (2013)
Journal Article
Innes, J. B., Blackford, J. J., & Rowley-Conwy, P. A. (2013). Late Mesolithic and early Neolithic forest disturbance: a high resolution palaeoecological test of human impact hypotheses. Quaternary science reviews, 77, 80-100. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.quascirev.2013.07.012

The transition in north-west Europe from the hunter-gatherer societies of the Late Mesolithic to the pioneer farming societies of the early Neolithic is not well understood, either culturally or palaeoecologically. In Britain the final transition was... Read More about Late Mesolithic and early Neolithic forest disturbance: a high resolution palaeoecological test of human impact hypotheses.
