Abstract:
This report summarises the results of an environmental archaeological analysis of two boreholes, and follows on from geoarchaeological fieldwork, deposit modelling and assessment of the sub-surface stratigraphy carried out along the route of the proposed London Cable Car. The results have revealed a sequence of Shepperton Gravel overlain by peat and alluvium, capped by varying thicknesses of made ground. Two boreholes were collected from the route. Collectively, the sedimentary sequences from these sequences indicate deposition between the Early Mesolithic and Bronze Age cultural periods. During this time, the biostratigraphic records indicate the transition from birch and pine woodland growing under cool climatic conditions to the growth of mixed deciduous woodland on the dryland and alder fen carr on the floodplain during the later Mesolithic and Neolithic, before a decline of woodland during the Bronze Age in response to relative sea level change and woodland clearance for settlement and agricultural purposes.
