New Website Feature - Kent Archaeological Reports

Great news - we have added a new feature to our Kent Archaeological Reports.  You can now use an interactive map to find reports in an area and even sort by Phase.  You are still able to look at the full reports in a list format as well, however the sorting facility allows you more freedom to find the reports you are interested in for example, Anglo-Saxon etc.

You can find this new feature via the publications drop-down or click on the link below to go there now:-
