The agricultural landscape of the Terramara of Baggiovara \u201c17th \u2013 16th cent. B.C.\u201dThe paper reports pollen data obtained by the analyses of samples taken from the Terramara of Baggiovara (Modena), dated from 17th to 16th century BC.Archaeobotanical analyses, integrated with palaeobotanical researches, carried out in some terramare of the region, gave useful elements for the reconstruction of the plant landscape and human impact during the middle and late Bronze age of the alluvional lowland area.Data suggest that the landscape was open with low forest cover and most land devoted to agricultural activities (small cereal and legume fields, alternated to extended pastures). The economy was mainly based on animal breeding rather than cultivations. The pollen spectra show a high presence of biological records that are pastures indicators, cerealia and other synananthropic indicators. Altogether, all these are important characters of anthropization
