Prehistoric and Anglo-Saxon Discoveries on the East Kent Chalklands

Details

This latest volume in Canterbury Archaeological Trust’s Occasional Paper series describes discoveries along the route of the Whitfield-Eastry by-pass. An extensive programme of fieldwalking and evaluation investigated a number of sites: two sites were subject to full excavation. At Eastling Wood a prehistoric barrow proved to be the focus of burial and ritual from the late Neolithic until the late Iron Age. At Church Whitfield two successive Iron Age farmsteads and an Anglo-Saxon hamlet with at least two hall-houses were situated at the crossing point of two downland trackways – a crossroads that survived until the new road was pushed through in 1995.
