Abstract

The Oxford Archaeological Unit (OAU) was commissioned by Ashford Borough Council to undertake a walkover survey and rapid fieldwalking/metal detector survey of an area of land to the south of Great Chart and to the south and east of Singleton, as marked upon Figure 1. The site is being considered for a community Woodland and Recreational Area and will contain woodland, public access facilities such as car parking, cycleways and picnic areas. The site is divided into two detached areas: Area 1 lies tot he north, and Area 2 to the south (see Figure 1). Neither area contains any previously recorded archaeological deposits although the specification for this work produced by the Heritage Conservation Group of Kent County Council has recorded the projected line of a Roman road across the southern edge of the site (ibid, 1). However recent work has cast some doubt upon this alignment and is not now considered likely that the road follows this course (ibid).
