The Oxford Archaeological Unit was commissioned by Union Railways Ltd to conduct a field evaluation of land situated south-west of the A20 and south-east of Godinton Lane, Ashford, Kent (NGR TQ 990 440). The work was conducted between 28th September and 2nd October 1998. Five evaluation trenches were excavated in an area of 1.6 hectares. A pit and a ditch at the south end of the site produced a small assemblage of Iron Age and Roman pottery. The majority of the pottery (74% by weight) was recovered from the pit. The features were shallow and appear to have been truncated by later ploughing. A colluvial deposit which post-dates the features produced redeposited sherds of probable Iron Age date, late Iron Age/early Roman pottery and a single sherd of 2nd mid 3rd century pottery as well as postmedieval tile. A single undated ditch cut the colluvium and is likely to be post-medieval in date.
