    This paper reviews the positives and negatives of five hydrological monitoring projects used on archaeological sites in the waterlogged landscapes of fenland East Anglia and east Yorkshire in England. The importance of understanding the landscape context is paramount, as is retrieving an appropriate dataset over a sufficiently lengthy period of time to obtain reliable results and predictability. This is crucial to get right as wetland archaeological records are an irreplaceable resource.
