Abstract: The upper part of a pollen profile from Keszthely-Úsztatómajor (western Hungary) containing the period between 7525 and 1681 years BC is presented. The profile was dated by 6 radiocarbon data, between 8864±161 BP and 3730±58 BP. The surroundings of our locality is a well-investigated area by archaeological methods. According to the archaeological chronology, our epoch contains the period from the beginning of the Neolithic until the end of the Middle Bronze Age. The difficulties in recording prehistoric occupation phases in pollen diagrams compared with the results of the archaeological excavations are discussed. In our sequence only the primary anthropogenic indicators were observable, the pollen of the secondary indicator taxa were occurred only in a very small number, they were inexpressible in percentage values. With two figures and one table.
