Archaeologists’ memorial to founder members

A memorial to two founder-members of a group that carried out a project to verify how the Romans made mortar and tiles for buildings they constructed during their occupation of Kent has been unveiled at Lympne Roman Fort (‘Portus Lemanis’), one of the most important relics of that era in the county’s history.

In 2013 Peter Stutchbury and Maureen Lovering helped establish ‘SHAL’ (Studying History and Archaeology in Lympne) and took part in successful experiments in which 75 litres of lime mortar were made from local ragstone, and 36 tiles from local clay, using Roman methods.
