Title Droitwitch urban waterlogged deposits: collation and synthesis
Summary Droitwich is associated with archaeologically rich waterlogged deposits and yet continues to be a focus for development and renewal, especially following the recent canal restoration. This project sought to address the need to protect and manage such significant remains by synthesising existing data and applying relatively new techniques for capturing information about the palaeotopography and the disposition of cultural deposits, with a particular focus on the location of buried areas of waterlogging/organic survival. English Heritage (now Historic England) funded Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service to carry out the project, as part of the wider work within the National Heritage Protection Plan on identifying waterlogged archaeological deposits.
