Kent graduate to reveal hidden archeology on university land

Fred Birkbeck, a 2018 graduate in Classical and Archaeological studies, will be revealing the results of his award winning dissertation consisting of a geophysical survey of the landscape surrounding the church of St Cosmus and St Damian in Blean.

Fred used geophysical survey techniques to confirm the existence of settlement activity in the seemingly empty fields to the east of the church whilst confirming the presence of a large long-forgotten medieval manor house and possible Roman villa in the adjacent field all land which is owned by the University of Kent.

Fred will be telling all during a fully illustrated public lecture at St Cosmus and St Damian Church, Tyler Hill Road, Blean, CT29HU on 5 October.  Entrance is free to all and refreshments will be provided.
