Findspot - Prehistoric Flints

Description of this historic site
Notes about this historic site

1 Worked flints, apparently residual in later contexts. Most of the flint fragments and flakes found on the site are too undistinguished to allow any close cultural attribution beyond the statement that there appears to be some prehistoric activity in the vicinity. It is alwys possible that some of these fragments could have been used as substitute gun flints and thus have been introduved to the site in historical time, but this is an unlikely explanation especially for the core and the smaller flakes.
2 Dating confirmed as Mesolithic to Bronze Age.
