16th April 2018:

Two Oxford Archaeology projects feature as case studies in a new book published by the University of Brighton as part of a project to collate and critically review approaches to deposit modelling applied by geoarchaeologists working across the commercial and academic archaeological sectors

The case studies presented in the volume, Deposit Modelling and Archaeology, which has been edited by Chris Carey, Andy J Howard, David Knight, Jane Corcoran and Jen Heathcote, will form the basis for best practice guidelines for the historic environment sector in the Historic England guidance series.

Among the informative and exciting case studies are Stanford Wharf Nature Reserve, which was investigated by Oxford Archaeology as part of the DP World London Gateway Port Development in the Thames Estuary, and the Bexhill to Hastings Link Road, a scheme that skirted round a series of alluvial sequences deposited in a former coastal inlet of the Combe Haven in East Sussex.
