Record #202096:

Insect fossils and irrigation in medieval Greenland / Eva Panagiotakopulu, Malcolm T. Greenwood, Paul C. Buckland.

Title: Insect fossils and irrigation in medieval Greenland / Eva Panagiotakopulu, Malcolm T. Greenwood, Paul C. Buckland.
Author(s): Panagiotakopulu, Eva.
Greenwood, Malcolm T.
Buckland, Paul C.
Date: 2012.
In: Geografiska Annaler. Series A. Physical Geography. (2012.), Vol. 94(4) (2012)
Abstract: Examines agricultural practices of medieval Norse settlement in west Greenland. At cathedral site of Gardar, modern sheep farm of Igaliku, artefacts and geoarchaeological evidence show that infields were improved by manuring. Also, systems of ditches provide evidence of controlled irrigation in area liable to drought. Presents further palaeoecological evidence, largely from insect remains, indicating build-up of thick plaggen soils as result of large-scale manuring with animal, domestic and structural waste, perhaps supplemented by pared turf.
