The Quaternary fluvial record of England is remarkably rich in fossils and artefacts, providing a record of environmental change and human occupation over multiple glacial-interglacial cycles.  This excursion will visit key fluvial sedimentary sequences, with biostratigraphical and Palaeolithic components emphasized.  Section visits will be reinforced by displays of fossils and artefacts. Many of the localities are geoheritage sites, so there will be discussion of future management issues. Tourism is also woven into the trip, with stops in central London and Salisbury, a boat trip in Oxford and overnight stays in Stratford upon Avon.
