Finds - Palaeolithic objects in Warwick
Findspot - a Palaeolithic handaxe and two flint flakes. The exact location from which the objects originate is not known.
1 The museum contains a beautiful, large ovate hand-axe, with a straight cutting edge. It is late Acheulian in culture. Unfortunately it is labelled ‘Warwick – Pleistocene Gravels’, so that it is uncertain from exactly what deposit it came, or even whether the word ‘Warwick’ refers to the town or to the county.
2 In addition to the axe two ?Palaeolithic flint flakes are recorded.
