As part of the Darent Valley Landscape Partnership Scheme we are exploring the Darent Valleys hidden Roman legacy in a two week community excavation that will be taking place at Lullingstone Roman Villa.

The River Darent was an important Roman supply route in the 2nd and 3rd Centuries BC. At the height of Roman activity, there may have been as many as 13 Roman sites along the River and this site is important as it shows the development of Romano Christian activity in the Valley.

This unique opportunity is open to members of the public to take part and it marks the 70th anniversary of the original excavations which took place in 1949. Based at Lullingstone Roman Villa between the 15th and 28th of July between 10am and 4pm each day.
