    Macrofossils The study of plant macrofossils is perhaps the most familiar type of archaeobotanical method. Plant remains are collected in the field whether by direct excavation sieving of excavated material or flotation of bulk samples Fairbairn 2005a Pearsall 2000. These plant remains tend to be charred and of hardy materials

    Table 1 Main features of the archaeological unit sampled for the archaeobotanical investigation at RJ-2. At RJ-2 a dry sieving method was applied to the soil samples collected in the test trench because no flotation machine was available7. As many as 42 soil samples with a total of 450 litres of archaeological deposit were processed.

An excellent way to recover very small artifacts is a technique called flotation in which a sample of soil is bagged without screening. Later on .
