Broadstairs, Kent (TR 379 678) on behalf of Kent County Council and
Kier Group Plc. The evaluation followed desk-based archaeological and
development impact assessments of the site carried out by OA for the
Council, which form part of the ongoing BSF Schools development
programme in Kent.

periods. The presence of a number of flints of Mesolithic and Neolithic
date to the south-west part of the site suggest a prehistoric focus lies
nearby. Overall, it seems likely that the features represent a small area of
occupation with the ditches representing part of a late prehistoric/early
Roman field system, with evidence of earlier occupation in the general
