Archaeology and Landscape in the Trent Valley Fourth Trent Valley GeoArchaeology Conference Wednesday 15th May 2013, British Geological Survey
Trent & Peak Archaeology  Established 1967
Increased pressures upon the archaeological resource of the Trent Valley, combined with a growing awareness of the rich  archaeology of the river terraces and floodplain, encouraged the establishment in 2001 of Trent Valley GeoArchaeology  (www.tvg.org.uk). This is a co-operative of stakeholders, including researchers, heritage managers and industrial  representatives, which provides a mutually supportive framework for multidisciplinary research across the Trent catchment.  It has initiated and supported a wide variety of research projects in the Trent Valley, together with three previous  conferences aimed at disseminating more widely the results of recent research.   This year’s conference provides a forum for discussion of a wide range of projects, including research on early hunter-  gatherer communities, later prehistoric and Roman landscape change, cultural resource management and developments in  site prospection techniques. Full details of the programme (PDF, 700kB) and a booking form (.doc, 40kB) may be viewed  and downloaded from this website. Abstracts of the presentations will be posted on this website prior to the conference.  For more information on Jeanine Breaker's collaborative partnership with BGS and NERC, which provided the opportunity for  creation of the Swarkestone triptych, click here.
