Abstract

In August 2008, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an eleven trench field evaluation at Thamesview School, Gravesend, Kent (NGR TQ 668 721) on behalf of the construction contractor Kier Group plc and the developer, Kent County Council. The evaluation followed desk-based archaeological and development impact assessments of the site, which forms part of the ongoing BSF schools programme in Kent. No archaeological features were revealed in the trenches, and no significant artefacts were found. The site is in the north-east part of a former WWII airfield, and appears to have been levelled to a slight degree either during construction of the airfield, or subsequently to form the existing school playing fields During January 2009 Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological watching brief at Thamesview School, Gravesend in Kent. Kent County Council commissioned the work in advance of works carried out by Kier Group Plc. The watching brief formed the last phase of archaeological investigations at the site during part of Wave 3 of the Kent Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme and revealed no archaeological features
