Abstract:
A total of eight boreholes and sixteen test-pits were put down across the site. The main aim of the geoarchaeological deposit modelling exercise is to reconstruct the sub-surface stratigraphy and environs of the site, and in particular to identify (1) any organic-rich horizons (e.g. peat) which may be suitable for further environmental archaeological investigations, (2) the original topography of the site and (3) the nature of the reclamation process. The borehole records indicate that in the northern and central areas of the site, the Made Ground tends to range between 5 and 8m in thickness and extends down to between ca. -0.50m and -1.00m OD. This level may be representative of the natural topography of the site prior to reclamation. However, it is also possible that in some places this former surface has been truncated during or prior to the reclamation process. Whilst the borehole records provide limited information on the nature and thickness of the Alluvium, there is no evidence for the presence of organic-rich units beneath the site which might contain archaeobotanical or zooarchaeolgoical remains. In addition, the potential for gaining a chronology for the Alluvial sequence is limited by the lack of organic remains, and probably also by contamination (noted in at least three of the borehole records). Therefore, no further geoarchaeological work is recommended on the Tees Renewable Energy Plant Site.
