Full Description

Three unstratified flint artefacts were found during a watching brief in 2008/2009. They comprise a scraper, a small core and a primary flake. The three pieces are made of translucent flint typical of that seen in other collections from the Trent Valley, and are assumed to have been obtained from the local gravels. They could belong together in the Late Mesolithic/Earlier Neolithic and may indicate nearby prehistoric activity. (1)
