Abstract:
Archaeological excavation of an area 7.66ha was conducted on land at Charing Heath, Kent, in response to a proposed extension of Charing Quarry. Prehistoric activity comprised late Mesolithic worked flint with potential associated occupation, and early-mid Neolithic, late Bronze Age-early Iron Age, and mid-late Iron Age features, including ditches, pits, a potential sunken-featured-building and Bronze Age hoard. Late Iron Age-early Roman activity comprised ditches, trackway and pits. These were superseded by ditches, trackway, post-holes, pits and a limekiln. Placed-deposits within some pits, evidence for iron smelting, and a plough-damaged coin hoard (AD 64-85) were also recovered. Roman activity dated no later than the mid second century, and this hiatus continued until the thirteenth-century, represented by ditches forming the west-side of an enclosure surrounding a contemporary farm and adjacent chantry chapel, the remains of which are protected. Post-medieval to modern features reflect continuity from this medieval land use, and included field boundary ditches illustrated on a manorial map dated 1639, pits, post-holes, a masonry footing or drain, and a metalled yard associated with the chantry farm. To the east, activity included a brick well, and horticultural pits, fronting Tile Lodge Road. The Phase 1 archaeological investigation demonstrated that all the recovered data has the potential to contribute to the local heritage setting, and that the late Mesolithic and early Roman activity, particularly the limekiln, also have the potential to contribute to wider regional and perhaps national research agendas.
