Kent Archaeological Review extract
 

Letter to the Editor.
by Susan Mayse.

Dear Madam,
The Painted House.

I understand the Painted House in Dover is in danger of being reburied for lack of funds to build a protective shell around it. I am sending a money order in the amount of five pounds as a contribution towards preservation of this site. My reason is selfish: I hope to visit the site and it's impossible to view wall paintings under tons of earth. Naturally, I also feel it's vital that such an unusual and significant find should be preserved for study and appreciation.

If the proposed fund doesn't materialize, or other arrangements are made, I leave it to your discretion to find an appropriate use for my contribution. In any case, may I extend my best wishes for the future of the Painted House and the attempt to keep it above ground.

Sincerely,
