In the former Bourtanger Moor, now reclaimed into arable land, peat pockets and younger marine sediments occur that have sealed the Early Holocene landscape as well as the raised bog fringing the Pleistocene spurs. These patches of buried environment provide good quality information on human exploitation from the Mesolithic up to late prehistory and again in the Middle Ages.
