Abstract:
This report presents a geoarchaeological deposit model for the Darent Valley, between Eynsford and South Darenth, Kent. A total of 66 borehole records held on the British Geological Survey (BGS) database were combined with data from three purposive geoarchaeological boreholes drilled in the floodplain of the River Darent to produce the model. Five main stratigraphic units were identified: Upper Chalk, Terrace Gravels, Head, Alluvium, and Made Ground. Recording of the alluvium in the BGS records was variable, resulting in poor overall modelling of the extent and thickness of alluvium in the Study Area. However, the three geoarchaeological boreholes (ARCA BH1, ARCA BH2, and ARCA BH3) revealed up to 0.86m of fine-grained mineral sediments. No waterlogged or organic sediments were noted in any of the boreholes in the Study Area, and therefore the Alluvium was assessed as being of low to moderate archaeological and palaeoenvironmental potential. Sediments of higher potential might occur in some places within the Study Area, but more detailed borehole studies would be required to improve the deposit models and to identify and assess any such strata should they exist.
