Fawkham and Ash Archaeological Group (FAAG)

The Fawkham and Ash Archaeological Group was formed in 1965 and carried out rescue work under the direction of Roger Walsh, later Ted Connell, Roger Cockett and Gerald Cramp. From that time members of FAAG have carried out a number of emergency excavations in the parishes of Ash, Fawkham, Longfield and West Kingsdown. From time to time notes of work carried out have appeared in the Kent Archaeological Review and Archaeologia Cantiana.
   Roger Walsh passed away in 2003 and Ted, Roger and Gerald now in advancing years are conscious that the archaeological information discovered by members of the Group should be shared.
   In an ideal world each excavation would be written up and hopefully published in the archaeological county journal, however it has to be recognised that this is becoming less likely to happen with each passing year. So a determined effort is now being made to bring our archaeological archive up to a state where all the information in our excavation records, plans, photographs and finds etc can be accessible to interested parties.
   Therefore information about our work will be displayed on this website
