Abstract

Large accumulations of marine shells are characteristic of mesolithic coastal sites in northwest Europe, but how intensively shellfish were exploited remains controversial. Excavation of a midden on the Isle of Portland and ecological study of presentday molluscs suggest that prehistoric human exploitation may have had a significant impact on local shellfish populations.
