The Folkestone Townscape Heritage Initiative is funding the talk as part of a planned event for the Folkestone Triennial 2014 being delivered at Quarterhouse on Tuesday 15th July at 6pm.
Andrew Richardson, Outreach and Archives Manager at Canterbury Archaeological Trust, leads a talk on the findings of last year's community archaeological excavation, led by the Canterbury Archaeological Trust, which took place in Payers Park, as part of the 'Open Air Museum of the Everyday' event. This event formed part of a series of activities organised by muf Architecture/Art as a prelude to the current transformation of Payers Park into a renewed community space within Folkestone.
The talk will contextualise the dig in relation to earlier excavations in the vicinity of Tontine Street and the Harbour, and discuss the wider historical and archaeological context of this important part of Folkestone.
Space is limited to 50 only so please book early. Streams into the Street is a free event but booking is essential.
