(p. 157)

In the summer of 1958 a number of peat profiles were sampled in the western part of Brittany (Fig. 31a). Although a study of the environment of prehistoric man and the interference of man with the vegetation was the primary aim, full attention will be paid to other aspects of this study.

Before proceeding to a discussion of the results of this investigation a short description of the sites where the samples were taken will be given. With one exception the peat profiles to be discussed in this paper were sampled with a modified Dachnowsky borer, the inner diameter of which amounts to 3.7 cm.
