Two recent research projects focus on the remains of meals from, respectively, a collection of ancient latrines, and the Tollund Man bog
body. For both projects, the close collaboration between archaeobotanists and palynologists provide us with data that would not have
been available with only one of the disciplines at hand. Where the larger plant remains represent the consumption of the seeds of
plants, pollen provides us with evidence of the flowering plants that were consumed before seeding. Together, we have been able to
dramatically increase the range of plant species identifed.
