We show how 14C dating may be combined with palynological and paleogeographical research to correlate human occupation history with environmental change, focusing on archaeological sites in the Dvina–Lovat River region of Russia. Cultures in this region range from Early Neolithic to the Middle Ages, ca. 5500 bc–ad 100, based on calibrated 14C ages. The dynamics of water basins in the region, related to climatic change, are one cause of population migration.
