Abstract/Summary

Fire histories are derived from sedimentary charcoal sequences using a suite of statistical techniques that has become increasingly complex. Here we outline the various assumptions that underpin these methods, and highlight potential sources of error that must be considered. We hope to spur debate on the circumstances in which such methods are appropriate, and highlight areas needing further research.
