Branch publications have continued as fast as finances have permitted, and
the Branch and the Society have been able to come to a satisfactory
arrangement with the County Council whereby our large, and constantly
growing, collection of documents has been deposited at County Hall, where
they are admirably housed and available for inspection by members.
Finally, help has been given towards a number of important excavations,
including those in the war-damaged areas at Canterbury and Dover, the
Roman Villa at Lullingstone, and Holborough Roman barrow, and the Society
itself undertook the excavation of a Jutish cemetery at Lyminge.
Mr. I. D. Margary, recognizing the problems facing societies such as ours in
a period of inflation, very generously gave £500 towards general
publication costs. Substantial donations towards the cost of publishing
particular papers have also been received from the Council of British
Archaeology, from the Ministry of Works, and from Kent Oil Refinery Ltd.
