Excavations at Downlands, Walmer, Kent Paperback / softback
Part of the CAT Occasional Paper series
Evidence for prehistoric and Romano-British settlement was recently discovered on the southern outskirts of Walmer in Kent. The prehistoric occupation commenced in the late Bronze Age and continued into the early part of the middle Iron Age, the main phase of occupation being from c 600-350 BC.
Roman activity began very soon after the conquest and continued until at least the third century when a large aisled building, possibly a barn associated with a villa, was built on part of the site. This publication gives an account of the archaeology with full reports on both the prehistoric and Roman pottery, the small finds and palaeoenvironmental evidence.
The concluding chapter brings together discoveries and recent research elsewhere in Kent, in order to set this site at Downlands, in the far south-east corner of England, in its wider context.
