The Distribution of Waterlogged Deposits in Carlisle

Front cover for Distribution of Waterlogged Deposits in Carlisle

Final report for English Heritage Project No 6502

By John Zant, Jamie Quartermaine, Anna Hodgkinson

As part of the National Heritage Protection Plan work on Identifying Wetland and Waterlogged Sites, coordinated by English Heritage, Carlisle was chosen as one of a number of key historic towns where synthesis of information on the distribution and significance of waterlogged archaeology and palaeoenvironmental evidence was carried out. The main purpose of this synthesis is to enhance the provision of planning advice aimed at the management and preservation of waterlogged archaeological remains, though the data could also serve as an important research tool.

The study area comprised Carlisle's historic core, within the city's medieval defences, and the historic suburb of Stanwix, north of the River Eden, augmented by a 50m-wide buffer zone.

This report was prepared by Oxford Archaeology North and Cumbria County Council with support from English Heritage.
