Uncovering the precinct wall Possible buttress Excavation underway
We have just begun a new investigation within the North Holmes Campus of Canterbury Christ Church University.

Initial evaluation was conducted last summer and the footings of the medieval abbey precinct wall were located. The present evaluation is intended to find out more about the site, based on the results of the earlier phase of work and other sites in the near vicinity. It is probable that further medieval activity, Anglo-Saxon craftworking remains and Bronze Age features will be identified.

The work is being funded by Canterbury Christ Church University ahead of the construction of the new Arts Building that is proposed for the site.

We will post more soon.
