Finglesham is a village near Deal in Kent, England, which was the location of the Finglesham Anglo-Saxon cemetery, site of a seventh-century Anglo-Saxon archaeology find known as "Finglesham man," as described in 1965 by Sonia Chadwick Hawkes and Hilda Ellis Davidson. The population of the village is included in the civil parish of Northbourne.
It is also known for the presence of a famous road sign (actually at nearby Finglesham Estuary), pointing to the nearby places of both Ham and Sandwich (and thus reading "ham sandwich" as if referring to the common item of food).
