Archaeology in Kent to AD 1500

Peter E Leach (editor)

CBA Research Report No 48 (1982)

ISBN 0 906780 18 7


Title page of report 48

The papers published in this volume were, with the exception of Richard Pollard's, read at a weekend symposium held at Kingsgate College, Broadstairs, from 9 to 11 November 1979. With similar events already held in Sussex and Essex it was clearly desirable to do this for Kent and complete a trilogy for south-east England. The purpose of the symposium was to outine what has been achieved in Kentish archaeology and to demonstrate what still needs to be done. The presentation of the papers during the weekend showed gaps in our knowledge for virtually every period and subject. The discussions showed that perhaps the greatest need is for a strategy through which priorities can be established, and to which units, professional and amateur, cauld conform.
