The OAU carried our a field evaluation at Springhead, Northfleet East GIS Substation, Kent (NGR TQ 6230 7245) on behalf of the National Grid Company in January 1999. The evaluation revealed a probable medieval ploughsoil containing pottery of the 11th-12th Centuries, which overlay a number of pits and ditches which produced pottery of similar date, along with animal bone, burnt clay and fragments of Niedermendig lava quern. The features lay towards the crest of a slope overlooking the site of Springhead Roman Town.

A flint flake and burnt flints, of probable prehistoric date , and three sherds of Roman pottery were also recovered, but this material was associated with medieval or later pottery and was therefore residual in character.
