Description :
This paper reports on the development of a British database of C 14 dated Holocene fluvial units over the last 15 years. Since its inception in 1989, the database has undergone substantial expansion, refinement and improvement together with considerable methodological development, so that today it serves as a powerful research tool for investigating the spatial and temporal dynamics of Holocene river development and flooding in Great Britain. The improved analytical method is here applied to the currently existing database by examining datasets of C 14 dated fluvial units from river basins that lie within and beyond the limits of Late Devensian glaciation.
