Abstract

Natural England undertook two excavations ahead of a project to divert the River Fal from an over-deepened channel. Eleven environmental bulk samples, including one sample of less than one litre in volume, and one monolith sample were taken during the excavation from the western trench (SW 95420 60136). The trench revealed a sequence of stratified organic-rich, clay, and gravel deposits. Five of the bulk samples were sequential and the remaining six were more general ones from deposits. These samples were submitted to Oxford Archaeology North to be assessed for palaeo-environmental remains. The eleven bulk samples were processed and assessed for plant and insect remains. The monolith sample was processed and assessed for pollen, fungal spores, diatoms and phytoliths. The results for all the material types are presented in this report
