West Kent Spring Symposium.
This was the first meeting of its kind arranged on behalf of the KARGC, catering for Groups in West Kent. Seventy-one people attended the meeting which was held at Maidstone Museum on April 10th.
During the morning speakers from the various groups reported on their current projects, and in the afternoon session speakers lectured on the following topics:
|E E Harrison, FSA.||"Stone Implement Petrology in Surrey."|
|F Jenkins, FSA.||"Romano-Gaulish Clay Figurines."|
|B Blake||"Late Secondary Neolithic Settlement at Lawford, Essex."|
|W S Penn||"Romano-Celtic Temples and the Cults of Source."|
|B J Philp||"Faversham Abbey."|
Judging by the success of this first Conference, it is obvious that a larger hall will be required for the next one in spring next year, and an effort will be made to hold it before the start of the digging season. I would like to thank Mr Grove, Curator of Maidstone Museum, for his kind hospitality, and members of various Groups, especially Messrs Jenkins, Penn and Philp for helping with the organisation.
