On Track: the archaeology of High Speed Section 1 in Kent, an Oxford Wessex Archaeology monograph by Paul Booth, Timothy Champion, Stuart Foreman, Paul Garwood, Helen Glass, Julian Munby and Andrew Reynolds, celebrates the immense scale and award-winning quality of the archaeological and historic building investigations that resulted from the construction of HS1 Section 1.

The project encompassed some truly exceptional individual discoveries, such as the Early Neolithic longhouse at White Horse Stone, one of only a handful known in Britain and the most thoroughly dated example. Extensive excavations at Thurnham Roman Villa and Pepper Hill Roman cemetery have contributed greatly to our understanding of Roman Kent, while the Anglo-Saxon cemeteries at Cuxton and Saltwood Tunnel are immensely important additions to the corpus of Kentish cemeteries.
