London Underground's 1990s Jubilee Line Extension Project was rich
in archaeology. This third book in the Project's archaeological
series considers the new evidence for the Holocene environment of
central London. The book's emphasis is explicitly
geoarchaeological; results from a series of sites describe the
sedimentary and ecological processes operating in the central
London floodplain. This information is presented within a wider
archaeological synthesis. The hallmarks of this book are an
investigation into the Thames' Holocene geoarchaeology, a model of
the development of the London Thames, a series of maps (including
the changing topography of Westminster from the Mesolithic to the
Iron Age), and the integration of new evidence with earlier work in
the environments of London and the Thames. It identifies what can
be achieved from the seemingly unpromising circumstance of
numerous, often quite small sites, some with very little
archaeology but considerable potential for understanding past human
environments, within four main study areas along the 18km line
between Westminster and Canning Town.
