Abstract

An archaeological Watching Brief was undertaken by Cambridge Archaeological Unit along new roadside ditches for the A47 Thorney Bypass. No archaeological features were encountered although a sequence of marine, alluvial and peat deposits was revealed, probably dating from the Mesolithic period onwards. This evidence provides further insight into the fluid and shifting character of prehistoric landscapes around Thorney, enhancing the results of earlier palaeoenvironmental investigations in the area
