Abstract


Survey revealed about seventy settlement clusters. From 330 to 500m above sea level are deserted farmsteads, many associated with field systems and corn kilns; above 500m, shealings and enclosures associated with the summering of stock. An attempt is made to relate their chronology to population distribution and the development of the deer forests. Au (abr)
