Abstract:
Two geoarchaeological boreholes were put down at the site in order to clarify the nature of the sub-surface stratigraphy across the site, and to evaluate the potential of the sedimentary sequences for reconstructing the environmental history of the site and its environs. The sedimentary sequences in the boreholes overlying the Sand and Gravel at 7 River Walk are broadly consistent with the Holocene alluvial sediments that are found across the middle and lower reaches of rivers draining in to the English Channel, usually comprising a lower unit of sandy alluvium which often contains visible organic remains. This horizon is evident at 7 River Walk below ca. 17.6m OD. In many places this sandy alluvium is overlain by a peat bed, representing the development of a more stable terrestrial surface across the floor of the valley. At the 7 River Walk site sediment deposits indicative of more stable terrestrial surfaces (i.e. peat) are absent however, indicating either that a) this part of the floodplain has not experienced a lowering of the water level suitable for such sedimentation, or b) such deposits have subsequently been eroded. No further work was recommended.
