    Layman's description

    It is increasingly understood via modern charring experiments that charcoal can record information which can be used to answer the questions about fire regimes. However a number of gaps in our knowledge currently preclude our ability to apply these techniques robustly to the fossil record, this project generated pilot data to allow us to produce a robust calibration datasets and production of new methods to better understanding palaeofire.
