Between 11th and 14th August 2008, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological field evaluation at Dane Court Grammar School, Broadstairs, Kent (TR 379 678) on behalf of Kent County Council and Kier Group Plc. The evaluation followed desk-based archaeological and development impact assessments of the site carried out by OA for the Council, which form part of the ongoing BSF Schools development programme in Kent. The evaluation consisted of ten trenches, three of which to the south-west part of the site revealed late prehistoric/early Roman activity. This took the form of a flint filled pit, a posthole and a number of field ditches. Pottery from the pit, the posthole and the ditches was of late Iron Age/early Roman date, probably spanning the crossover time of these two periods. The presence of a number of flints of Mesolithic and Neolithic date to the south-west part of the site suggest a prehistoric focus lies nearby. Overall, it seems likely that the features represent a small area of occupation with the ditches representing part of a late prehistoric/early Roman field system, with evidence of earlier occupation in the general area.
