"Archaeology at Smallhythe: 2000 years of history" an illustrated talk by Nathalie Cohen. Nathalie, the National Trust Regional Archaeologist, and her team are in their third year of excavations at Smallhythe Place, Kent, revisiting a site once investigated by the Time Team. Now lying over ten miles inland, the tiny village of Smallhythe was once a port lying alongside the Rother, a river which was also known in the past as the Limen. The excavations revealed that during the medieval period, Smallhythe was a location for royal shipbuilding. Nathalie will be bringing us up to date with the dig and what plans are in store for excavations in the future. We thoroughly recommend this talk and look forward to meeting you at St Mildred's Church on Monday, February 26th at 7.15 for 7.30pm.
