High Weald

The woodlands of Kent, Sussex and Surrey in the High Weald hold many secrets to the history of past activities. Archaeological evidence is often well preserved in ancient woodlands which have generally seen less change than agricultural land.

Woodland archaeology can be divided into two broad categories; evidence from past woodland management and evidence from other activities that happened, often before an area became wooded. This latter is very wide and includes the remains of industrial activity, boundaries and settlement sites.
