Abstract:
Two boreholes were put down across the site as part of geoarchaeological investigations in June 2011. When combined with other previous records from the site, the sub-surface stratigraphy revealed a sloping gravel surface from south to north, representing the base of the Bankside palaeochannel. The palaeochannel was infilled with alluvium and a thick sequence of peat. An assessment of the samples revealed the peat dated from the Early Mesolithic to Late Neolithic, representing a new record from this area of London. Analysis of the microfossil and macrofossil remains indicated a transition from open cold conditions with sedges, grasses, and pine and birch woodland, to alder dominated carr woodland on the wetland, and mixed deciduous woodland on the dryland. The record includes an elm decline and evidence for the nearby presence of yew.
