The Meads, Sittingbourne

Construction of a mixed retail and residential development, on an area known as ‘The Meads’, near Sittingbourne, commenced in May 2008. The site, which straddles the boundary between Sittingbourne/Milton Regis and Bobbing, had been subject to brickearth extraction in the past, so surviving archaeology was not expected, despite an aerial photograph of 1982 which appeared to show the cropmarks of large ring-ditches on the site. Consequently, a condition for a watching brief was placed on the site, which was carried out by Canterbury Archaeological Trust. Read more here. FRAG members were recruited to assist with this effort during 2012.
