Abstract
    This report presents the results of studies carried out as part of the European Planarch 2 project (Action 2A) between 2003 and 2005. This action has been concerned with developing improved methods for the archaeological evaluation of wetlands. It has been taken forward by partners from Essex County Council, Kent County Council, the Flemish Institute and the Dutch State Service for Archaeology with the other Planarch partners from France, Wallonia and Germany contributing to the development of a wetland map for the Planarch area. This report comprises summaries of work undertaken by the Planarch partners in Essex, Kent, Flanders and the Netherlands along with six weeks of joint fieldwork where teams from the partner regions worked together. The evaluation methods reported on include walkover survey, field walking, auger survey, test pitting, geophysical survey, deposit modelling, and deposit monitoring (physical & chemical properties) applied to a range of wetland environments. The report considers the present European context for managing the heritage component of wetlands, the value of the wetland resource and the threats upon it. In conclusion it considers how the work of the Planarch partners has developed methods for evaluating wetlands and where future priorities lie.
