St Peter’s Church. Archaeology Dig

St Peter’s Church. Archaeology Dig

Weekends from 22nd January to 19th February 2017
The dig is being run by Annie Partridge at Canterbury Trust and since work began on 22nd January they have discovered evidence of a glazed tile floor which is causing some excitement. Annie says, ‘’The floor in the church isn’t tiled so it poses some interesting questions about how it got into the demolition rubble of the tower collapse, and what the 12th century floor underneath might look like.
We still have high hopes of finding the floor intact underneath the demolition layer. Fingers crossed it’ll look like this (but probably not if a building fell on it in 1661!):
The dig continues every weekend until 19th February and volunteers are welcome to get involved.
