The Kochersberg loess area, west of Strasbourg (France), has been explored with the aim to reconstruct the Holocene landscape dynamics. Sediments, pollen and plant macro-remains were analysed from an organic rich sediment core, sampled in the thalweg of a small catchment. The several proxies are offering a multiscalar view of landscape evolution from the Neolithic to the Middle Age. At the catchment scale, major changes in the landscape are always associated with intense phases of occupation revealed by archaeological excavations.
