ARCUS Project 220: Analysis of organic deposits from trenching at Elvaston, Derbyshire. Level One Assessment
Department of Archaeology and Prehistory, University of Sheffield, Sheffield, UK.
1996 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

A Level One assessment was carried out to evaluate the state of preservation within the organic deposits, and to assess their potential usefulness, should further work be undertaken, for the retrieval of palaeoenvironmental information. Selected profiles within palaeochannel sequences were examined, and assessed as to whether these contained macrofossils in a state of preservation which was likely to provide data adequate for the reconstruction of past landscapes within the area. Other factors of special interest were those relating to environmental change, such as changes in sedimentation or vegetation, be they human or naturally induced. The potential for the use of three complementary data retrieval methods was reviewed.
