Stone Age Thanet Discoveries

Kent News reports that Stone Age artefacts have been discovered during excavations along an 11km pipeline route in Thanet.

Teams from Wessex Archaeology found the archaeological remains along the pipeline route between Foreness Point at Margate and Weatherlees Hill near Sandwich, during work last summer on a £80 million environmental improvement project by Southern Water.

Now the finds are being studied by experts so that as much as possible can be learnt about how people have lived in Thanet since the Stone Age.

The earliest finds are more than 5,000 years old and the most recent date back to the World War Two.
