Abstract

Episodes of regional and country-wide Holocene alluviation in British river basins are identified using information from 59 published sites that extend from northern Scotland to the south coast of England. Widespread synchrony of Holocene fluvial episodes in Europe and USA, particularly over the last 5000 years, suggests that climate may have more directly controlled sedimentation and erosion in British rivers than hitherto been believed. Although prehistoric and historic forest clearance and agriculture were important for initiating soil erosion
