Theme I. Inventory, stratigraphy and conservation of mires and peatlands
In accordance with archaeological investigations conducted after the discovery of an Iron Age bog body, a 3D-landscape model of the Grosses Moor near Uchte (Lower Saxony, Germany) was developed. It shows the extension of the peatland during the middle of the first millenium BC. More than 5000 soil profiles taken during the last 60 years were stratigraphically synchronized and used for the reconstruction of the Iron Age landscape.
