Full Description

During an archaeological evaluation of a site at Silverlands, Buxton, in 1993, three pieces of flint were found in one of the trial trenches. Of these, one was a natural flint, one was the striking platform of a small core, and the last was the bottom half of a small leaf-shaped arrowhead which had been subjected to burning. The finds were thought to represent the normal background scatter of flints and therefore not significant. (1)
