Wetlands are a non-renewable resource of high potential for organic archaeological deposits and palaeoenvironmental reconstruction. This resource is at threat both through anthropogenic factors such as peat milling, and natural decay associated with global warming. Only a small percentage of the identified wetlands in North West Europe have been studied with regard to their depth, stratigraphic architecture and the heritage assets they contain.
