Geological maps

Deposit Modelling and Archaeology, Guidance for Mapping Buried Deposits, published by Historic England on 31 January 2020, suggests that: ‘Geological maps produced by the British Geological Survey (BGS) are deposit models in their own right. Until the relatively recent past, the emphasis of geological mapping was placed on the detailed understanding of economically-significant deposits rather than the superficial sediments. Therefore, not all Quaternary sediments have been recorded and mapped in detail, although they may be of significant archaeological interest.’
