AbstractWe show how 14C dating may be combined with palynological and paleogeographical research to correlate human occupation history with environmental change, focusing on archaeological sites in the Dvina-Lovat River region of Russia. Cultures in this region range from Early Neolithic to the Middle Ages, ca. 5500 BC-AD 100, based on calibrated 14C ages. The dynamics of water basins in the region, related to climatic change, are one cause of population migration.
