Archaeological resource modelling in temperate river valleys: a case study from the Trent Valley, UK

Howard, A.J., Brown, A.G., Carey, C.J., Challis, K., Cooper, L.P., Lincey, M. and Toms, P. (2008) Archaeological resource modelling in temperate river valleys: a case study from the Trent Valley, UK Antiquity, 82, (318), pp. 1040-1054.

Record type: Article


Methods for mapping and determining the condition of archaeological resources while they are still underground have been in development for nearly half a century. The authors here offer an example from the frontiers of the art: the application of a package of remote sensing procedures not only designed to locate sites but to model the valley deposits which contain and cover them. The variation in success of different methods in different deposits offers a guide to the design of evaluation projects on sand and gravel terrain everywhere.
