References to the existence of historic remains in NW Iberian caves are frequent. However, archaeological research tends to focus on the search for evidence of older occupations, with little attention given to these historic levels. The aim of this article is to present the re- sults of archaeobotanical analysis (charcoal analysis and carpology) from two caves in the eastern mountains of the province of Lugo � Cova do Xato and Cova Eirós � to determine the management of forest resources by the different communities living in them.
