Sentinels on the Marsh – Historical and archaeological surveys
Using volunteers, the project aims to chart the history of the churches and their relationship with the communities in which they are situated. Churchyards will be surveyed to record the memorials and assess their condition. Photographic surveys will help to identify and recorded surviving earthworks, and churches will be photographed as a fixed record of the sites.
There will be a community excavation at St Martin’s church in New Romney. This will take place over two short summer campaigns – 2018 and 2019 – and will attempt to define the limits of the building and address the key question of its foundation date. A mobile exhibition will be created from this work with photographs, maps, plans and text and will showcase the results from the whole project.
