"Videotext Communications was commissioned by Channel 4 to carry out an archaeological evaluation as part of the Time Team television series in the grounds of Syndale Park, Ospringe Kent ... The results of a watching brief during the construction of a gas pipeline in 1994 and evaluation trenches by Paul Wilkinson of the Kent Archaeological Field School suggested that the site contained the remains of a Roman Fort of Claudian date. As such it was likely to represent one of the earliest forts currently known from Britain. Confirmation of this would have considerable implications towards the debate concerning the location of the initial Roman invasion of Britain." Source: Wessex Archaeology (2009) (PDF).
