Buttway Project
Jul
23
to Aug 7

Buttway Project

The big one!!

The aim of the project is to undertake an archaeological dig to investigate the features shown in the geophysics survey and to try and date any archaeology. The dig will be open to members of the community who are interested in becoming more involved with practical archaeology in the Cliffe area.
It is proposed that the dig is undertaken in a two week period as the geophysics indicates that there are potentially a number of features across the Buttway site and an on going excavation will allow members of the public and other interested groups to participate fully in the dig.
A geophysical survey was carried out on the Buttway by members of the Cliffe at Hoo Historical Society and West Kent Archaeology Society (a previous report has been submitted to the Parish Council) and a number of features identified.

This months meeting we'll be reviewing our first dig of the year in Swingate Ave and planning our strategy for the next one.

As ever it would be great to welcome any new faces wanting to come and have a chat and maybe discover a little more about the area we live, and if you've got any interesting items that you've found or had passed down or any old photographs of the village then we would love to see them.
