Short summary
Soil records provide information about 5 millennia of heath management in cultural landscapes on sandy soils.

After the introduction of chemical fertilizers more than 90 % of the heaths were transformed into productive arable field or forests. Currently the last heaths are preserved as part of the cultural heritage.
