Abstract

'Peat balls,' defined as 'rounded masses of peat-rich clayey silt' and up to 0.5 m in size, are preserved in ancient creeks cut in an intertidal-salt marsh succession at Mersea. They are a consequence of reworking by creek migration, probably during an 18th Century phase of salt marsh extension.
