Trent Valley GeoArchaeology
Catchment Tributaries of the River Trent
The Trent Tributaries project is a two-year research programme, based at the HP VISTA Centre, University of Birmingham, investigating the impact of catchment tributaries on the geoarchaeology of the River Trent. The project is lead by principal investigators Dr Andy J Howard and Mr Keith Challis. The aims of the research are:
Additional work will also be undertaken in two other smaller tributary valleys (the Doverbeck and Devon) with contrasting physiographic and hence hydrological regimes, which also contain sand and gravel deposits. Their study will provide the opportunity to test hypotheses developed during the more intensive survey of the two principal tributary valley floors.
