Letter from the Chairman.
The success of our first two issues has prompted us to increase the number of copies of the newsletter and to print it. We hope that the new look will appeal to you.
The publication promises to be valuable and exciting but its success will depend on what Kentish Archaeologists send to the Editor. Apart from reports on archaeological activities we want discussions in our columns of vital issues; specialist articles; news of forthcoming digs and other events; requests for information, advice, excavators and so on. In other words, anything with an archaeological flavour.
One specialist function of the journal will be to assist in the collection and collation of information. For example, has anyone found or seen an analogy to the Corinthian Capital from Springhead? It looks medieval with shields round it, although the motif could be described as an ovolo and tongue. A better example is the recording and interpretation of querns, a sadly neglected subject, and one more fully covered in this issue.
Remember that the aim of the Kent Archaeological Research Group's Council is to co-ordinate and encourage field archaeology in Kent. Let our county lead in the field.
Best wishes for a successful year.
