Findspot - Mesolithic flint

Description of this historic site

Findspot - Mesolithic flint artefacts were found during a field walking exercise at Nadbury Camp.

Notes about this historic site

1 72 pieces of flint were found during field survey within Nadbury Camp in 1980/1. Some of these were possibly Mesolithic and included two bipolar cores, and a rod with bilateral retouch.
2 Flints found during regular walking of the E field are poor in quality resulting in small cores. The size combined with the location of the site would suggest a Mesolithic date; however, in view of the nature of the raw material a Neolithic date is also possible.
3 Excavation report.
4 Dating given as Mesolithic.
