Notes about this historic site

1 Small number of flint flakes, blades and tools from excavation of Bronze Age cemetery (PRN 1842)/Iron Age settlement (PRN 5510). These were found mainly in the silting of the ditches, scattered and at various depths. The blades, varying from 50 to 100mm in length, skilfully struck from cylindrical or prismatic cores, are almost certainly Mesolithic. Other flints are Neolithic/Bronze Age (PRN 5511).
3 Dating given as between the Mesolithic and the Bronze Age.
