This monograph presents the results of the Lea Valley Mapping Project, funded by the Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund, which takes a geoarchaeological approach to reconstructing the past landscape and its relationship to archaeological distributions. It will be indispensable for those seeking to understand past landscape characteristics or predict the archaeological potential of any location in the lower Lea valley, from the M25 to its confluence with the Thames. Its methodology section will be invaluable for modelling the buried landscape in other river valleys where thick alluvium and modern made ground exist; and it will also appeal to anyone wanting an introduction to Quaternary deposits, environments and landscape processes in Greater London.
