Our current project at Shorne

We are excavating a building about 100 metres from Randall Manor.

The building appears to have had at least two phases and to be from the medieval period. Much of it has been constructed using reclaimed material from the Manor so is therefore later in date. The picture below shows one of the walls with the inner face made from chalk blocks and the outer from flint, a common style of construction in Kent for that period.

We still have a lot to learn so the excavation will continue for some time. Would you like to join us in an effort to answer a number of questions, such as – what was it used for? You’d be very welcome. Email us at SWAGkent2023@gmail.com to check when we’ll be on site.
