The two main dune systems in the area between Hoek van Holland and Bergen are described: Older Dunes and Younger Dunes. The vegetational history of the Older Dunes is described with the help of pollen-analytical and archaeological data. The formation of the Younger Dunes, starting 1200 A.D., is brought into connection with preceding human interference in the vegetation. The vegetation of these Younger Dunes is described on the basis of pollenanalytical and archaeological founds.
