Early Mesolithic Wetland Sites in the Middle Kennet Valley
National Importance Programme Pilot Project Report
By Wessex Archaeology
The pilot project proposes a methodology for defining, recording and weighing the significance of early Mesolithic wetland sites of national importance and how to define the spatial extent using a study area of the Middle Kennet Valley in West Berkshire.
Case studies are provided which applied the existing scheduled monument Principles of Selection and the criteria for nationally important flint scatters in tabular form to wetland locations at Thatcham, Wawcott and Ufton Green with selected upland sites for comparison.
