I spoke last night in the rather splendid Ash next Sandwich village hall with attached heritage centre containing a fine archive of local material for researchers. I was guaranteed a good crowd to hear about Bryan Faussett as one of his major sites was Gilton in Ash parish. A number of people lived very close to the original sand pit where excavations started in the 1760s and were extremely curious to hear the history of the many interesting finds which have now continued for over 200 years. What lies under their back gardens now, I wonder?
Archaeology is flourishing!
