Findspot - Palaeolithic flint flake

Description of this historic site

Findspot - a flint flake, probably a waste product that was produced when a flint tool was being made during the Palaeolithic period. It was found on the west side of Coventry Road, Baginton.

Notes about this historic site

1 One miscellaneous worked flint fragment recorded from ‘the village pit’ at about this location.
2 Part of a well-rounded flint pebble which is humanly worked has been discovered (not in situ). It is probably not a tool, but merely the waste product in the production of one.
3 On the accession cards in Coventry Museum, 3 flint awls are listed as coming from the surface of the village pit: their numbers are A 885/21/1-3.
