Droitwich urban waterlogged deposits: collation and synthesis

Front Cover sheet from National Heritage Protection Plan publication 'Droitwich Urban Waterlogged Deposits'

English Heritage Project 2776

By Derek Hurst, Nicholas Daffern, Keith Wilkinson, Andrew Howard

Droitwich is associated with archaeologically rich waterlogged deposits and yet continues to be a focus for development and renewal, especially following the recent canal restoration. This project sought to address the need to protect and manage such significant remains by synthesising existing data and applying relatively new techniques for capturing information about the palaeotopography and the disposition of cultural deposits, with a particular focus on the location of buried areas of waterlogging/organic survival. English Heritage funded Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service to carry out the project, as part of the wider work within the National Heritage Protection Plan on identifying waterlogged archaeological deposits.
