Abstract:
Geotechnical boreholes were monitored and a programme of deposit modelling carried out in order clarify the nature of the sub-surface stratigraphy and to evaluate the potential of the sedimentary sequences for reconstructing the environmental history of the site. Following the results of the deposit modelling environmental archaeological assessment was carried out on two additional geoarchaeological boreholes subsequently put down at the site. A sequence of Gravel overlain by Holocene Alluvium (including Peat), capped by Made Ground was recorded. The deposit modelling indicated that a channel aligned approximately southwest-northeast traversed the eastern part of the site. Within this channel the Shepperton Gravel surface was recorded at between ca. -2.5 and -3.0m OD. The Gravel surface is overlain by Alluvium, which below ca. -1.0m OD is generally sandy (the Lower Alluvium). The Lower Alluvium is overlain in places by a Peat horizon between ca. -1.0 and 0.5m OD and between 0.10 and 0.60m thick. Within borehole <QBH2> a silty, woody Peat was recorded between -0.79 and -0.22m OD, whilst a very thin (<5mm) horizon of Peat was recorded in borehole <QBH1> between 1.06 and 1.055m OD. The results of the radiocarbon dating of borehole <QBH2> demonstrates that Peat accumulation commenced during the Middle Bronze Age (3460 to 3360 cal BP), and that cessation occurred during the Late Bronze Age/Early Iron Age (3150-2930 cal BP). During the accumulation of the Peat, the pollen and seed remains are indicative of an alder carr dominated environment on the Peat surface, with mixed deciduous woodland on the dryland. No definitive evidence for human activity is recorded within the Peat; however, a possible decline in lime woodland may be associated with human activity.
