Guidance for teachers
‘A town unearthed: Folkestone Before 1500’ will run in Folkestone until March 2013. The work of the project is centred on the excavation of the Roman Villa on the East Cliff and the history of the town and surrounding area before 1500.
We will be working in three main areas in the Folkestone area: the Roman Villa at the East Cliff; the Norman castle on Castle Hill and the Bayle area, tracing the medieval history of the centre of the town.
Our ATU education programme for 2011 includes:
- Site visits in July
- Classroom visits, talks and assemblies (February to December)
- Guided historical walks for schools in Folkestone area(March to September)
- Participation in archaeological survey work
- Landscape walks. (March to October)
We can help you plan a local study and provide opportunities for fieldwork, walks and access to the archaeology. Ian Coulson, former KCC History Adviser, is available to secondary schools for a free half day to assist with planning projects and activities.
