This paper considers the process of producing reconstruction drawings of two past wetland landscapes: the Ancholme valley at Brigg around 1000 cal BC and the Humber foreshore at Melton at c. 1400 cal BC. Despite the problems of integrating different strands of evidence and information, and especially in determining the contemporaneity of environmental and archaeological evidence, this paper argues that reconstruction drawings remain an attractive medium with which to convey the results of interdisciplinary research to a larger public.
