Abstract:
This report is a geoarchaeological assessment of borehole logs obtained during Ground Investigation works carried out on the site of the proposed Cannington Flood Defence Scheme (FDS), Cannington, Somerset. The assessment was carried out by ARCA on behalf of Cotswold Archaeology. The boreholes drilled at the site encountered bedrock of the Otter Sandstone Formation (FDS BH1 only) and of the Mercia Mudstone Group (MMG). The bedrock geology was overlain by Quaternary superficial strata comprising river terrace deposits of the Parrett Formation and by Holocene alluvial/intertidal strata of the Somerset Levels Formation. With the exception of some partially-decayed organic matter between 1.40m and 2.20m below ground level in FDS BH8, no other specific archaeological or palaeoenvironmental indicators were noted in the Quaternary strata encountered at the site. Holocene alluvial strata at the site were assessed as being of low to moderate palaeoenvironmental potential, whilst all other strata were assessed as being of no or low palaeoenvironmental and archaeological potentials.
