The geoarchaeology team are very busy this week, with a large number of core samples having arrived for urgent description, interpretation and subsampling from sites in both Essex and the Kennet valley. Pictured are Richard Payne and Nicki Mulhall, using their Munsell charts to good avail.
Once interpreted, samples will be taken for laboratory assessment of pollen, diatoms, molluscs and plants, as well as for radiocarbon dating.
