During August 2009, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an
archaeological watching brief at Manor School (formerly Sweyne County Junior School), Swanscombe, Kent (NGR: TQ 606 738). The work was commissioned by Kent County Council in advance of the demolition of an existing structure and construction of a new school. The watching brief
revealed extensive post-medieval landscaping of the site and also encountered the post-medieval features observed during the 2008 evaluation trenching. The groundworks were wholly contained within the sterile clay silt (considered to be an estuarine deposit equivalent to Upper
Loam of the Pleistocene sequence) observed by CAT during test pitting in 2008, and any earlier Pleistocene deposits were not encountered. No features or artefacts pre-dating the post-medieval period were observed
or recovered.
