Land Ahoy

English Heritage archaeologists have been a fascinating discovery in Richborough Roman Fort close to Sandwich - the original Roman coastline (keeping in mind this refers to the shoreline at time of Roman invasion.

Interesting to note that it is now 2 miles inland from current coastline.

In the Roman era, Richborough Roman Fort overlooked a sheltered lagoon, where in AD43 the invading Roman forces first landed.

Other finds include a Medieval dock.
