Mesolithic geoarchaeological investigations in the Outer Thames Estuary

Year of Report

This paper presents the results of geoarchaeological analysis of semi-terrestrial organic deposits recovered in three cores from the Outer Thames Estuary. 

The cores are located up to 12 km off the current Kent coast, within an area that at the height of the last ice age formed part of a vast habitable plain connecting Britain with the rest of the European continent.
