Prehistoric and Anglo-Saxon discoveries on the East Kent Chalklands: Investigations along the Whitfield-Eastry by-pass 1991-1996No 9. Prehistoric and Anglo-Saxon discoveries on the East Kent Chalklands: Investigations along the Whitfield-Eastry by-pass 1991-1996
Paul Bennett, Keith Parfitt and Jon Rady

This latest volume in our Occasional Paper series describes discoveries along the route of the Whitfield-Eastry by-pass. Two sites were examined in detail. At Eastling Wood a prehistoric barrow proved to be the focus of burial and ritual from the late Neolithic until the late Iron Age. At Church Whitfield two successive Iron Age farmsteads and an Anglo-Saxon hamlet were situated at the crossing point of two downland trackways – a crossroads that survived until the new road was pushed through in 1995.
