Abstract

Extending from the coastal lowlands of Strangford Lough, County Down, through the Lough Neagh basin and the scenic Antrim coast to the lakelands of County Fermanagh, this is the field guide to the QRA field meeting that included a wide variety of sites highlighting the impacts of regional glaciation on the North of Ireland, the diverse character of landscape evolution during the late-glacial and Holocene, and evidence for human-landscape interactions since the Neolithic period. It also describes a number of peatland and lake sites that have been used to reconstruct mid to late Holocene climate change and to develop regional tephrostratigraphies.
