“…The observed age differences (Table 4) are explained by having dated organic material transported into the lake after residing on land for around 840 years (cf. Ridge & Larsen, 1990;Olsson, 1991). Similar phenomenons were reported from other Arctic lakes where organic contents is generally <5%.…”

“…Extremely low autochthonous production of organic matter restricts radiocarbon dating to allochthonous plant remains or molluscs, most of which are reworked thus not dating the time of deposition. Resulting radiocarbon ages are demonstrably too old (Retelle, 1985;Leung, 1988;Olsson, 1991;. Because of these specific problems 14C measurements from High Arctic sediments very often produce erroneous dates.…”

“…If the organic matter would have been largely allochthonous, viz. derived from erosion of forest soils in the catchment, this ought to have affected the 14C-dating, resulting in more or less anomalous dates (Pennington, 1981(Pennington, , 1991Olsson, 1986Olsson, , 1991. Almost throughout the Holocene, however, the dating of regionally characteristic pollenstratigraphical changes yielded dates consistent with the current 14C-chronology.…”

“…2;and Digerfeldt, 1982) and the recorded archaeological information (Digerfeldt & Welinder, 1988), there was an accelerated increase in human activity in the surroundings of the lake from about 2000 BP, comprising forest clearance and cultivation. The anomalously old ages of the uppermost three dates are probably caused by the supply of old organic matter from cleared and eroded forest soils in the catchment (Olsson, 1986(Olsson, , 1991. The approximate date 1800-1850 AD is inferred from the pollen diagram.…”
