Introduction

The Archaeology of East Kent Access Road (Phase 2)

Oxford Wessex Archaeology (OWA) Joint Venture undertook archaeological investigations in advance of construction of the East Kent Access Road (Phase II), largely between November 2009 and September 2010.

The initial two-month period was mostly taken up with preliminary surveys comprising field-walking, test pitting and metal detecting and limited evaluation trenching. Several small-scale excavations were carried out following the main phase of investigations and all fieldwork was completed by the end of May 2011.

The main excavations saw almost the entire foot-print of the new road excavated, an area of some 48 hectares, providing a unique archaeological transect across part of Thanet.
