Summary "This volume is an integrated overview and synthesis of available data relating to the Quaternary evolution of the River Trent. It provides detailed descriptions of the Pleistocene sedimentary records from the Trent, its tributaries and related drainage systems--a sedimentary record that spans a period of approximately half a million years--and the biostratigraphical and archaeological material preserved therein. The fragmentary Trent terrace sequence is an important element of wider reconstructions of Pleistocene palaeodrainage in Britain, providing a link between the records preserved in the English Midlands and those in East Anglia"--Provided by publisher.
Bibliography Includes bibliographical references and index.
