Postglacial and Star Carr Archives: In Context

In context

These two major projects are set out within the wider context of the work of the Seamer Carr Project 1975-1985 and the Vale of Pickering Research Trust's work from 1985 onwards, which are broadly summarised within the interactive map of the area below. This map gives a very broad overview of the nature of the archaeology encountered along the edges of Lake Flixton, and provides a context for postglacial activity at both Star Carr and Flixton Island. By selecting the various layers below, it is possible to map the extents of Lake Flixton over the present day landscape, and also display the various archaeological sites that have been identified and excavated over the past 50 years. Clicking on these sites will produce a brief summary, below the map, of the archaeology from these sites.
