Abstract

Macrofossil analyses were carried out on material from five early Iron Age fire-set pits and a late Bronze Age slag dump in the eastern Inn valley (mining area of Schwaz-Brixlegg) in order to gain insight into past local vegetation and wood use by prehistoric miners. From the waterlogged slag dump site, numerous uncharred plant remains (seeds and fruits, wood, and even leaves) were recovered, mainly deriving from the surrounding vegetation, as well as parts of an ore-washing device (a wooden trough made of larch planks). Charred remains of fuel wood and food plants were discovered as well. Charcoal analysis on the fire-set pits in Schwaz dolomite showed that for fire-setting in the lower Inn valley, exclusively coniferous wood had been used.
