Pepper Hill, Southfleet, Kent - Integrated Site Report
From 1997 to 1998 Oxford Archaeology undertook an archaeological investigation at Pepper Hill, Southfleet in Kent on behalf of Union Railways South (Limited) ahead of construction of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link. The site lay south of the Roman town and religious complex at Springhead (Vagniacis). Excavation revealed almost the entire plan of a Roman-period cemetery which developed alongside a road that took inhabitants, pilgrims and other traffic into the town. A total of 558 graves or other funerary-related features were encountered.
