I analyse small mammals, which become incorporated into archaeological sediments, in order to reconstruct local palaeoenvironments. Small mammals are rodents such as mice, shrews, golden moles, bats, mole rats, gerbils etc. These rodents are suitable palaeoenvironmental proxies as they are spatio-temporally constrained, have small home-ranges (usually less than 1 km radius), precise ecological requirements and t they often exhibit high intrinsic rates of population increase facilitating rapid response to environmental change within fine spatiotemporal scales.
