Abstract

Archaeology South-East (UCL) has recently completed the post-excavation analysis of the results of the long-term Brisley Farm project, a series of large-scale archaeological investigations carried out in Kent since 1998. This research has revealed significant insights into the development of an ancient landscape located to the south of Ashford, spanning some three millennia.  Amongst the most revealing discoveries, which included two ‘warrior burials’, is evidence of how funerary and sacred concerns played a pivotal part in the Late Iron Age and Roman everyday life of the area.
