Hunt for Romney Port
This project will help to discover the most likely location of the original Romney Port which would have been significantly inland from where the coast line is today.
The project will be delivered through volunteers and the Heritage Officer. Some research will need to be done on where the most likely places are, and then field surveys will be undertaken, with two test pitting weekends, focussing on ground-truthing and LiDAR data, and finds will be catalogued and sent to professionals for analysis.
Community Archaeology Consultant Andrew Mayfield has been recruited to work along side us on the Hunt for Romney Port project.
Hunt for Romney Port contributes to Rediscover project theme.

It is planned to create a number of short films about Romney Marsh during the life of the scheme and this will include recording the progress of the projects. Go to the film footage page to get details of the films we have produced so far.
