Tools and Equipment We Use

 

FSARG is largely a self funding organisation. Although not averse to applying for funding for a specific purpose, e.g. a particular publication or item of equipment, we prefer to be independent as far as our research aims are concerned. Although the list of equipment used by us is long, much of it has been donated by local people or made by members. On the rare occasions when we need to use more specialised and expensive equipment, we borrow it from the Kent Archaeological Society. Training is paid for by ourselves, and is our single biggest expense. Happily, our activities are insured under the Faversham Society's overall scheme - we pay this back by organising fundraising lectures and other events.

 

During Excavations

 

Almost everything required can be found around the house, shed or garage of the group members, or easily made. It's best to bulk buy the re-sealable plastic bags.
