Between the Thames and Medway Monograph
Between 1999 and 2010, Archaeology South-East (UCL Institute of Archaeology) undertook three large-scale archaeological excavations in north-west Kent: two on the Hoo peninsula and one south of Gravesend. They afforded a unique opportunity to challenge previous assumptions and broaden the archaeological narrative. This open access volume presents the archaeological results from all three sites. It includes, in addition, a chapter on the Pleistocene and Holocene evolution of the area as currently understood through the geoarchaeological study of depositional processes and associated palaeoenvironmental material.
