Future plans 12 – 14
 
It is Dr Thomas’ intention is to mount a further 3-year campaign of excavation on Lyminge village green (Tayne Field) 12-14 with funding from the AHRC (decision expected April 12). This phase of research will also complete a ground-penetrating radar survey within and without the footprint of the Parish Church of St Mary and St Ethelburga to help re-interpret the core buildings of the monastic complex as initially brought to light by mid-19th-century antiquarian investigations in the churchyard (Thomas 05).
