Abstract:
An assessment ('Phase 1') of three geoarchaeological boreholes and 57 geotechnical boreholes drilled at Long Reach, Dartford, in 2010 demonstrated that strata of moderate to high palaeoenvironmental potential existed throughout the site within the Holocene sedimentary sequence. As a result a programme of bio- and geoarchaeological assessment ('Phase 2') was carried out by ARCA and Quaternary Scientific (Quest) between January and June 2012. The work focussed on cores recovered from two of the geoarchaeological boreholes drilled during the Phase 1 assessment and comprised mass specific magnetic susceptibility, palynological and diatom assessment and AMS 14C dating. Following the Phase 2 works, and an additional geoarchaeological watching brief on further geotechnical boreholes, recommendations for a final analytical phase of works ('Phase 3') were made. The Phase 3 works reported here comprised the drilling of three additional geoarchaeological boreholes, the production of updated deposit models for the site, AMS 14C dating of organic strata from to boreholes, and a programme of bioarchaeological assessment (ARCA BH6) and analysis (ARCA BH8) of pollen, diatom and waterlogged wood remains.
