A causeway is a track, road or railway on the upper point of an embankment across "a low, or wet place, or piece of water".[1] It can be constructed of earth, masonry, wood, or concrete. One of the earliest known wooden causeways is the Sweet Track in the Somerset Levels, England, which dates from the Neolithic age.[2] Timber causeways may also be described as both boardwalks and bridges.
