This Report deals with most of the excavations by the West Kent Border Archaeological Group from 1960 until 1970. It covers work on 30 sites, 26 of which were actually discovered by the Group, the majority in West Kent and just three across the border in East Surrey. Although this work has substantially increased the number of known sites in the area and radically modified local settlement-patterns no attempt is made here to comment on the wider implications as this forms part of another study. The work does, however, demonstrate the potential of similar areas in South-East England.
