Abstract

In April and May 2004, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out a field evaluation at East Hall Farm, Sittingbourne, Kent (NGR: TQ 9260 6420) for CgMs Consulting Ltd, acting on behalf of Symonds Group Ltd, agents for Trenport (East Hall Farm) Ltd. The evaluation took place in two fields, 7.44 hectares and 3.75 hectares in area respectively, which were understood to have survived the impact of quarrying in the 18th and 19th centuries. The evaluation confirmed the presence of intact zones of archaeology within the proposed development area. In the larger of the two fields, to the north-east, the evaluation revealed the remains of a late Bronze Age to early Romano-British landscape consistent with that predicted by the desk-based assessment. Three areas of potential archaeology were identified within this field will require further mitigation in the future. The other field to the south-west proved to have been disturbed by extraction works, such that no archaeological remains survived.
