Notes: (1) Prehistoric Ceareals from Scotland
Cereal, Hulled, Weeds, Pottery, Sherds
Roman, Bronze Age, Neolithic
A brief note on the survival of grain impressions on pottery. The only cereal found on well-dated sherds of the Neolithic and Bronze Ages in Scotland was barley, naked or hulled. There are a few occurrences of flax and emmer wheat on Bronze Age pottery. Roman sites have yielded, besides various kinds of wheat and barley, also oats and rye, as well as several weeds.
