The Kent Archaeological Review (KAR)

A 3-times-a-year journal dealing with current archaeological activity in Kent. It contains reports on discoveries, excavations, the work of archaeological groups, news items, details of meetings and conferences, various features and articles, letters and illustrations.

It is essential reading for all libraries, societies and individuals with an interest in Kentish archaeology. It was first published in April 1965 and many of the back numbers are still available.

(Issues 1 to 30 are no longer available, but many articles from those early days are now available on-line.)

You can now search for previous KAR articles up to issue 167 (2007) by keyword(s)

The Editor invites contributions for the KAR on all matters relating to Kentish archaeology and history. Whilst no guarantee can be given that all material will be published, all contributions will be carefully considered.
