Urban waterfront geoarchaeology in the Netherlands and the UK: a comparison

Posted by on March 29, 2015

The objectives of the project were:
1. To test the applicability of models of urban (waterfront) site formation and post-depositional modification developed in the UK in a wider north-west European context. If the models are applicable, to use them to interpret urban waterfront sequences in Utrecht, if not to produce new models for the town and other Dutch cities.
2. To establish relationships with Dutch colleagues which will enable both parties to develop their research in urban archaeology/geoarchaeology in a more informed manner.
