Illuminating the past – Enhancing the present – Inspiring the future

East Wear Bay Field School

The field school at East Wear Bay is now entering its third week and is going great guns. By the end of the first week a mass of Iron Age and Roman features had already come to light including an actual quern production area – a great find. A compact layer of chippings and dust from manufacture was uncovered, along with discarded querns in various stages of production, as you can in the photographs.

Take a look at the photos to see what else the students have been up to. Or take a trip to Folkestone for the day and see for yourself! The site is on East Wear Bay Road (CT19 9PR).
