Archaeological and Environmental Investigations of a Late Glacial and Flandrian River Valley Sequence on the River Soar, at Croft, Leicestershire. The Holocene 15 . The short barrow, on high chalk downland to the south-west of Avebury and the upper Kennet valley, and containing only a few inhumations according to Thurnam's 19th-century investigation, dates to the later 4th millennium BC.

Investigation of Flandrian sediments in the Nar Valley, Norfolk by M. V. Smith Download PDF EPUB FB2

Deteriorated pollen percentages have been recorded from Flandrian Fenland sediments at two sites in the Nar Valley, Norfolk.

The use of compression data from a soil mechanics technique, the oedometer test, has important bearing on the interpretation of the amount and types of deteriorated pollen encountered in the pollen stratigraphy of the by: 5.

Overlying these sediments is the Nar Valley Clay, which was also investigated by Stevens () and, together with the underlying unit, correlated biostratigraphically with the Hoxnian (Holsteinian) Stage.

The Nar Valley Clay is recorded from many localities in the valley (Ventris, ) and contains a marine fauna. LATE DEVENSIAN AND EARLY FLANDRIAN POLLEN AND MACROFOSSIL STRATIGRAPHY AT ABERNETHY FOREST, INVERNESS‐SHIRE A new, large diameter core from Abernethy Forest was radiocarbon dated, and the presence of Late Devensian sediments was confirmed.

Shetland: a pollen and macrofossil investigation, New Phytologist, /j Evidence considered critical to this interpretation was derived from U-series determinations from the Nar Valley, near Kings Lynn in Norfolk where sediment overlying Lowestoft Formation till at Tottenhill yielded an MIS 9 age Rowe et al.

(); a date that is close to the maximum that can be resolved using the U-series method. However, recent research in the Nar Valley, NW Norfolk by Gibbard, West, Andrew & Pettit (in press) has shown that the Tottenhill Sand and Gravel of Ventris (, ) represents an ice marginal.

Pollen, plant macrofossil, coleopteran, diatom and molluscan data, along with a suite of radiocarbon dates, are described from two middle to late Flandrian peat sequences (Vurlong Reen and Barland's Farm) that are buried beneath estuarine and/or marine sediments on the Caldicot Levels, southeast Wales.

With all these studies, it is surprising perhaps that the sediments themselves have received relatively little attention. This is less true of Holocene (Flandrian; post-glacial) sequences which, often in association with archaeological investigations, have yielded important insights into sedimentation controls and timing.

In the Nar Valley, Norfolk, the cannon-shot gravels are clearly younger than the Hoxnian interglacial deposits there (Stevens, ), and it is probable that these spreads of gravel and the constructional features are associated with late parts of the Gipping Stage.

A field guide for a short field meeting held in April with one day spent in the Nar Valley and another on the N Norfolk coast between Morston and Salthouse. The River Nar is a globally rare chalk-stream and is arguably Norfolk’s most unspoilt and beautiful example. As it flows through the downs and fenland of north-west Norfolk, its progression from chalk river to fen river is distinctive.
