Abstract:
Two geoarchaeological boreholes were put down in order to clarify the nature of the sub-surface stratigraphy, and evaluate the potential of the sedimentary sequences for reconstructing the environmental history of the site and its environs. The results of the investigations revealed that the Late Devensian Lea Valley Gravel forms the platform upon which Holocene alluvial sediments have accumulated. Across Phase 2 and eastern part of Phase 1, this surface is relatively high between -0.75 and -1.66m OD. Towards the western side of Phase 1 a depression in the Lea Valley Gravel is recorded at a depth below -3.81m OD, most likely representative of a former palaeochannel. This interpretation is consistent with that made by Stafford (2012), following investigations along the Ironbridge-Canning Town section of the A13, just to the south of the site. In the Phase 2 area of the site, the Holocene Alluvium overlying the Lea Valley Gravel is typical of the tripartite sequence found across most of the Lower Thames Valley, where the Lower Alluvium is overlain by a Peat bed, representing the development of a more stable terrestrial surface across the floor of the valley; and silty alluvium (Upper Alluvium) in which visible organic remains are uncommon. The Peat at the Phase 2 site is recorded at elevations between ca. -1 and -0.2m OD, and up to 0.35m thick. The sequences should be considered for further environmental archaeological assessment.
