Fine weather for our second day back on site. We did more work to clear the main trench over building six, removing the protective soil that we had used to cove...r the walls, and tidying up the edges. Tanya and Sandra made good progress on their area of the trench and were able to make a start on new archaeology, revealing a feature running east west back in the direction of building one. Star find was a coin from this feature, found by Tanya, which looks like Constantine I 335 - 341AD, but lets see what the experts think.

Our first day back on site this year. Following two days last week with Mike Howard doing a splendid job on the mechanical digger and dumper preparing a number ...of trenches. Today we had a good turn out and dry weather for a good clear up of the main trench to look at building six which we partially saw last year.

Our first day back on site digging at East Farleigh is scheduled for Sunday the 19th of March, weather permitting. We are intending to remove the topsoil for this year's trenches in the preceding week. Hope you can join us for what promises to be an interesting season.

Many are the voices of soldiers from the first and second world wars, stating their rank and regiments and expressing in a profane way what they thought about the war or the people holding them there.

Messages from over 100 years ago have been found scratched into and drawn on the walls of old prison cells in Folkestone Town Hall. The graffiti was found by workers inside the town centre...

40 years: Canterbury Archaeological Trust exhibition
Kent History and Library Centre, on now until 4 March*

A late Roman/early Saxon burial on Beer Cart Lane in... Canterbury was uncovered by archaeologists in 1980. Among the human remains there was also a skeleton of an elderly dog.

It was customary to bury the dead in individual graves outside the city walls, so this group burial has remained a mystery since it was first discovered. Visit the exhibition and draw your own conclusions as to what had caused these deaths.

* closed 31 Jan (9am - midday); 2 Feb (all day); 15 Feb (2 - 4pm)
