About the Event

The course will trace the development of the Kentish landscape itself from the Palaeolithic (Old Stone Age) onwards, including the formation of the Channel and the severing of the last land-bridge to the Continent. The introduction of farming, along with the creation of monuments, changing attitudes to and treatment of the dead, introduction of metal working and other technologies, and development of settlements, long distance links, and society will be among the many topics considered. The course will be illustrated with case studies and finds drawn from the Trust’s archives.
