Trent Valley GeoArchaeology
A RESEARCH STRATEGY FOR THE TRENT VALLEY
ON-GOING TVG RESEARCH PROJECTS
Experimental Mapping of the Risk of Encountering Buried Archaeology in Aggregate Landscapes A new English Heritage supported research project at the University of Birmingham that looks at ways of developing predictive models of the archaeological resource across the Trent Valley. Further details and a summary project design are available.
COMPLETED TVG RESEARCH PROJECTS
Airborne Remote Sensing of Alluvial Environments: a year long research project at the Vista Centre, University of Birmingham, to explore the potential of airborne multispectral and hyperspectral remote sensing for archaeological prospection in alluvial environments.
East Midlands Geophysical Survey Assessment: A one year research project, based at the University of Nottingham, to assess the effectiveness of geophysical survey methods in an area focused upon the East Midlands and Staffordshire. Further details are available.
Investigation of Lidar Backscattered Intensity: A one-year research project aimed at investigating the potential of airborne lidar backscattered intensity to remotely predict the preservation of waterlogged archaeological deposits. Further details are a summary project design are available now.
The Aggregates Industry in the Trent Valley – A History and Archaeology: A £36,000 six-month research project based at ARCUS, University of Sheffield, to investigate the emergence and development of the sand and gravel extraction industry in the Trent Valley. Further details are a summary project design are available now.
Palaeolithic Occupation of the Middle and Lower Trent: The Universities of Durham and Birmingham investigate the Palaeolithic heritage of the Trent Valley and adjacent areas. A summary project design is available for download now.
The Trent Tributaries: Investigating the impact of catchment tributaries on the geoarchaeology of River Trent, based in the VISTA Centre at the University of Birmingham. The project page includes further details and downloadable versions of the project design and reports.
Making Archaeology Matter: Development of information and materials to educate quarry managers and workers about the positive side of archaeology, and how it can be integrated into their day to day work. Based at York Archaeological Trust. A summary project design is available for download now.
