Published by Wessex Archaeology
Wessex Archaeology was commissioned by CgMs Consulting on behalf of Land Securities plc to undertake an archaeological evaluation prior to development of land situated on the south bank of the River Thames between Swanscombe and Northfleet and centered on National Grid Reference 562900 17300. The total area of investigation measured 17ha.
The investigation was divided into two parts: trial excavation of test pits and selected sieving for the identification of Pleistocene deposits and Palaeolithic artefacts and ecofacts, and extensive trial trenching for the assessment of survival and significance of Holocene remains. Both parts of the field investigation were undertaken concurrently between 10th November and 2nd December 2003.
