12 MayArchaeology Road Shows at Broadstairs Library and Holiday Inn Express, Minster

Over the weekend of the 15th & 16th May locals in Broadstairs and Minster will have the chance to see some of the exciting discoveries archaeologists are making on the route of Kent County Council’s new East Kent Access Road between Richborough and Manston.

An archaeology ‘Roadshow’ will be held at Broadstairs Library on Saturday 15th May and at the Holiday Inn Express on Sunday 16th May. As well as a range of family orientated activities, some of the finds unearthed so far will be on display and there will be a small exhibition.

Archaeologist, David Crawford-White, who is the archaeology Outreach Officer for the road scheme, will have all the latest news. Members of the Trust for Thanet Archaeology and the Isle of Thanet Archaeological Society will also be on hand with advice and information.

David Crawford-White, said ‘previous roadshows have been really successful. This time I will also be talking about the Community Excavation that will run from May 10th until June 4th. The Excavation is next to the Minister Services and anyone over 8 years of age can join in. You just need to go the website and sign up.’

Mr Crawford White added ‘This is a great opportunity for local people to get involved in their heritage. One week of the Community Excavation is over the summer half-term and we hope that families will come along and everyone can join in and have a fun day out.’

The Broadstairs roadshow is between 9.00-16:30 on Saturday. The Minster roadshow is between 10.00-16.30 on Sunday. For further details on the archaeology community programme on free talks to local groups and organisations as well as visits to schools visit our Outreach pages.
