Abstract

In March / april 1993 the Oxford Archaeologcal Init (OAU) conducted a two week rescue excavation at Boys Hall Moat, a scheduled ancient monumnet (S.A.M. 146 Kent) centered at NGR TR 0300 4075. The excavation work was commissioned by British Rail (Network South-East) in advance of construction work on the main Folkestone to London line.
Neolithic or Bronze Age activity was suggested by the presence of a few residual worked flints. Linear cuts may relate to either a zone of Late Iron Age / Belgic settlement similar to, or a continuation of, that recorded to the immediate north east of Boys Hall (Philp 1991, 74), or to an area of Late Iron Age arable cultivation.
One linear feature may represent part of the later 17th century formal gardens.
