Deposit Modelling and Archaeology, Guidance for Mapping Buried Deposits, published by Historic England on 31 January 2020, suggests that ‘Holocene’ refers to: ‘The youngest part of the Quaternary period, encompassing the last 11,000 years of geological time. It is often referred to as the postglacial period.'
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 Holocene as: ‘The youngest epoch of the Quaternary Sub-Era. Covers the last 11 800 years. Part of the Cenozoic Era. The concept of the Holocene ending at the end of the 18th Century is gaining ground, with the following Epoch termed the Anthropocene.’
