Projects and Research

A selection of projects undertaken by Archaeology South-East



Horsewash Lane, Rochester
An archaeological evaluation was carried out at the PB site, Horsewash Lane, Rochester between 4th of February and 10th March 2008 on behalf of the client Halcrow Ltd. A total of 10 trenches were excavated across the site, totalling some 110m in length.

The evidence from these trenches suggested the survival of an archaeological sequence dating from the Early Neolithic to the post-medieval period.

Kingsborough Farm, Eastchurch, Isle of Sheppey
Evaluation and excavation of a Neolithic causewayed enclosure and a Late Bronze Age enclosure.

Project Officer: Simon Stevens
Client: Jones Homes.

Highstead Farm Quarry, Chislet, Canterbury
Excavations revealed a possible barrow, a cremation/pyre cemetery, and settlement evidence of the Middle and Late Bronze Age. Fire-cracked flint associated with features beside a channel may represent a ‘burnt mound'. Three prehistoric trackways, including a possible droveway were identified. A field system, probably Roman, was superimposed upon the prehistoric remains. A 13th- to 14th- century farmstead, consisting of a series of enclosures and associated features, was also recorded.

Kingsnorth Power Station, Hoo, Isle of Grain
Excavation prior to the construction of a new power station recovered finds from the Mesolithic onwards. An agricultural landscape was established in the Early Iron Age and included a possible droveway, evidence for salt-works and a possible round-house. There was an apparent hiatus in activity until the Late Iron Age, when there was a settlement shift. During the Romano-British period activity intensified, reaching a peak during the mid 2nd to 3rd centuries when pottery production became prominent.
