Introduction

image

Middle Thames Northern Tributaries (MTNT) was an Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund (ALSF) project concerned with the development of a Geographic Information System (GIS) based tool to assist with the research and curatorial management of the important archaeological and alluvial deposits located within the Middle Thames Northern Tributaries. The project was carried out by staff from the Department of Archaeology and Anthropology, University of Wales, Lampeter, Essex County Council Historic Environment Branch and Hertfordshire County Council Historic Environment Unit. The project was conceived and implemented within the context of:

  • a history of intense pressure on the aggregate resource, particularly within the Lea Valley.
  • potential threats leading from the identification of the Herts-Essex border as a growth area for development
  • proposed expansion of Stanstead airport and future mineral extraction in the area

It was also undertaken in the light of the demonstrable importance of alluvial deposits in the river valleys for archaeological and palaeo-environmental material and research priorities set out in national and regional archaeological research frameworks.
