Description

Wetlands are widespread in Britain, from upland blanket bogs to coastal marshes. They have the capacity to preserve their own history through the preservation of organic materials, thus providing an archive for study by ecologists and archaeologists. The scholarly papers in this book illustrate the wide variety of research projects based on wetlands.
