Abstract:
This report is a geoarchaeological assessment of strata sampled in ten boreholes drilled at Plot A, Uxbridge Business Park. Gravels of the Late Devensian Colney Street Gravel Member were encountered at the base of the sedimentary sequence. In several boreholes the Colney Street Gravel Member was overlain by minerogenic alluvial strata of possible Lateglacial to Early Holocene date comprising both channel (lithoclast tufa) and point bar (fining-upwards sandy silt/clay) facies. The minerogenic strata were overlain by peats which formed across the site, most likely during the Mesolithic period. Later, rising base levels led to the formation of a reedswamp across the site resulting in the deposition of organic mud strata. Following the formation of the reedswamp, channels filled with oncoidal tufa deposits formed at the site, overlain in places by thin silt/clay deposits, related to later overbank deposition in a floodplain environment. The sedimentary sequence at the site is capped by modern Made Ground, probably related to the construction of the Sanderson factory, which truncates the Late Quaternary sedimentary sequence.
