Evidence of Mesolithic and Neolithic Flint industry in Hillmorton
Evidence of tool making industry from the Mesolithic and Neolithic periods in Hillmorton.
1 About 37 worked flints found in the Hillmorton area in 1988. The grid references given were : SP517730, SP51757308, SP517730 – 51657270, SP519732, SP52157314 and west, and SP 519731. The assemblage suggests a poor industry making use of the local river and glacial pebble flint. These finds are described as about 50% of the total found, and were selected as a general sample, and also as being most definite in their function. They were collected along field boundaries and a few metres into fields where growth was sparse; the fields were sown with cereals.
