ARCHAEOLOGISTS have uncovered the remains of a 2,000-year-old Roman theatre in Faversham – thought to be the first of its kind discovered in Britain.
The cockpit-style theatre, etched into the hillside, would have been used for religious plays performed to crowds of up to 12,000 people.
It was found off Graveney Road in the grounds of the Kent Archaeological Field School, just behind founder Dr Paul Wilkinson’s back garden.
