New Publication in Journal of Archaeological Science

Published: 1 November 2013
Article in JAS

Dr Fraser Sturt is lead author on a new paper published in the international Journal of Archaeological Science, entitled "New models of North West European Holocene palaeogeography and inundation."


This paper presents new 500 year interval palaeogeographic models for Britain, Ireland and the North West French coast from 11000 cal. BP to present. These models are used to calculate the varying rates of inundation for different geographical zones over the study period. This allows for consideration of the differential impact that Holocene sea-level rise had across space and time, and on past societies. In turn, consideration of the limitations of the models helps to foreground profitable areas for future research.
