Bronze Age Timber Platform
Thanks to funding from Historic England and Forterra, in September 2015 we began a new project – Bronze Age Timber Platform. This is an 8 month excavation of a settlement at the site that was destroyed by fire, causing it to collapse into a river channel, preserving the contents in situ. Information on our progress and discoveries can be found in Bronze Age Timber Platform.
Bronze Age River
In 2011 the Cambridge Archaeological Unit, University of Cambridge, in collaboration with Forterra, began to unearth a series of extraordinary finds. What we found, what we learnt and what we know about the history, geology and archaeology of the area, can be explored in Bronze Age River.
The work to uncover the settlement is necessary because there are concerns the water level at the site could fall some time in the future, meaning the remains of the houses cannot be preserved in situ.
To my mind the question is, given that datum point (the bronze age river) and being able to estimate from river flows, etc. the likely distance to the sea, what sea level rise would you propose from the Bronze Age to now on the Eastern edge of the UK?
