As part of an extensive programme of archaeological investigations carried out in advance of the construction of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link (CTRL), the Museum of London Archaeology Service was commissioned to undertake archaeological recording to the west of Northumberland Bottom, Southfleet, in Kent. The excavation areas lie c.1.5 km to the south-east of the Roman| 'small town' at Springhead. The site lies alongside the A2 (Watling Street) between Hazells Farm and Wrotham Road, and is 1.75 km long (OS NGR 562536 171753 to 564123 171006). The investigations were carried out between June 1998 and May 2000, under the project management of Rail Link Engineering, on behalf of Union Railways (South) Limited (a subsidiary of London and Continental Railways Limited).
