Inhalt

Star Carr is a world renowned site first excavated in the late 1940s by Grahame Clark. These excavations revealed
organic remains which are incredibly rare, though there are some parallels with sites in Germany and
Denmark. The evidence from Star Carr has been debated over the decades, but in 2004 new excavations commenced
with the aim of answering some of the questions which had been posed about this important Mesolithic
site. One of the alarming discoveries was that the site had deteriorated badly. However, some organic materials
remained, though in a very fragile condition. Some of the most spectacular of these are large wooden platforms
which had been constructed on what would have been the margins of the lake. In addition, ‘house’ structures
were discovered for the first time on the dry land. With a scientific programme including Bayesian modelling
and environmental sampling it has been possible for the first time to construct a picture of life in the Mesolithic
at Star Carr through time (Milner et al. 2018a; b).
