In the shadow of the castle: The story of Dover St James Exhibition

An exhibition of material recovered during excavations by Canterbury Archaeological Trust 2015 - 2017.

The exhibition presents excavated finds alongside a series of display boards that tell the history of the area.  Located between the eastern banks of the Dour valley, the high ground dominated by the castle, and the sea, the area is known to have been continuously occupied since at least 1150 AD.

It will be several years before the study of this amazing collection comes to an end.  However, for the first time archaeologists have an opportunity to display some of the material recovered and share some of the stories these items tell.
