This volume provides the first synthesis of the available prehistoric and topographic information from the area of north Southwark and Lambeth, London, in the period c.9500 cal BA to c.AD 50. The authors consider the interplay between environmental and riverine change and 'mobile' and 'settled' human communities. They draw on recent unpublished data as well as published work, including a Mesolithic camp adjacent to a Late Glacial lake in Bermondsey, a burnt mound and ring ditch with an assemblage of cremations, and preserved ploughmarks. The book incorporates an account of the succession of the palaeoecological environment, and the prehistory of Southwark and Lambeth is set in the wider regional context of the Thames Valley. The thematic chapters are supported by a gazetteer of all findspots of prehistoric material and specialist reports on the worked flint, pottery and radiocarbon determinations.GAZ Address Site NGR Period no. code (T Q) 2| 79-81 Bvauxhall Walk.
