Abstract

An archaeological evaluation was undertaken by the Oxford Archaeological Unit on behalf of Ruddy Developments Ltd on 5100sq. m of land at Bridge Street, Wye (near Ashford) (Fig. 1). It was carried out in fulfilment of conditions placed upon planning permission for residential development (Condition 9, Planning Application 94/471/AS). It was conducted to a specification set by the Planning Department of Kent County Council. The work took place on 1st - 3rd February 1995. The main feature of interest was a shallow ditch [413] crossing the slope of a hill in Tr. 4. Relatively large quantities of prehistoric pottery, dating to the Later Bronze Age/Early Iron Age, were recovered from the layer overlying it [404]. Worked flints were also recovered from above and within the ditch. These are broadly of the same period, although there might be an earlier element
