Abstract:
Geoarchaeological investigations were carried out at the site involving the collection of borehole samples, deposit modelling, laboratory-based assessment and analysis. The results of the investigation revealed a sequence of Shepperton Gravel overlain by Holocene alluvium including peat. The peat was radiocarbon dated from the middle Neolithic to Bronze Age. Analysis of the pollen provided a reconstruction of the vegetation history of the site; this suggested a wetland surface initially colonised by alder carr swamp and sedge fen, maturing towards fen carr woodland. Mixed deciduous woodland dominated by oak and lime occupied the dryland. No definitive evidence of human activity that might be correlated with the construction of the Bronze Age trackways at the nearby sites on Bellot Street were recorded.
