In its broadest sense, the word ‘bedding’ refers to a foundation, base or bottom layer. In the construction industry this might relate to the base material that paving is laid on, the mortar between courses of bricks, bocks or stone, the grout or adhesive used to fix tiles, and so on.
It can also refer to bedclothes.
Green infrastructure and open environments: London’s foundations: protecting the geodiversity of the capital, Supplementary Planning Guidance, published by the Mayor of London in March 2012, defines bedding as: ‘A feature of sedimentary rocks, in which planar or near-planar surfaces known as bedding planes indicate successive depositional surfaces formed as the sediments were laid down.’
Geoarchaeology, Using Earth Sciences to Understand the Archaeological Record, published by Historic England in 2015, defines bedding as: ‘…sedimentary structures visible in sections and characteristic of particular depositional environments.’
