News: The modern name of Kent is derived from the Brythonic word kantos meaning "rim" or "border", or possibly from a homonymous word kanto "horn, hook"

Regarding them slate boards, we used them in the 50's at Troy Town.
It is also where the expression"Not by a long chalk" comes from.
Depending on our well you had done, the teacher drew a chalk line on the board, the longer the line the better.
We used em but the chalk line had died out by then.

In 2004 archaeologists performed a dig at Bredgar Primary School where they uncovered flint foundations from a probable Roman farmstead and a ditch from an Iron Age enclosure.  Victorian arithmetic slates were also found, which would have been used when the school was built in 1868.
