Abstract:
Seven geoarchaeological test pits were put down at the Site to clarify the nature of the sub-surface stratigraphy and to evaluate the potential of the sequences to contain Palaeolithic archaeology or biological remains. Remnants of the the Lynch Hill Gravel were recorded at the site, however the presence of bedrock Chalk at the ground surface at a level of ca. 44m OD in the western half of the site shows that any Lynch Hill sediments at the site must represent the upslope feather-edge of the terrace deposits. In addition, the geotechnical and geoarchaeological investigations have shown that any in situ terrace deposits are masked by material, part of which may represent material introduced by mass-movement processes from higher ground, but the greater part of which is probably Made Ground. No in situ terrace deposits were recognised within the depth range of the geoarchaeological investigations (ca. 1.2m bgs). No further geoarchaeological investigations were undertaken at the site.
