Palaeoenvironmental evidence can also be contained within geoarchaeological archives in caves, overhangs and rockshelters. This integration of records is undertaken with the aim of identifying a (or a number of) terrestrial...

... of the current and its temperature have varied over time ( Bergh et al., 2018 ). Onshore traditional archives such as wetlands, peats and lake deposits are rare in this western region but a novel alternative of pollen archives of arid to semi-arid zones has been developed in the form of hyrax urine middens...

... for defecation results in an accumulation which may be used as a natural archive. In southern Africa, hyraxes (several species of mammal in the order Hyracoidea) produce middens in sheltered areas such as under rock overhangs. Due to their well-preserved and dateable nature, the analyses of hyrax middens...
