Full Description

SK 0615 7325: Silverlands, Flint and Chert: In the Micah Salt Collection at Buxton Museum is some material described as "Flints found in the new road, Silverlands, Buxton". The material consists of 11 waste flint flakes and a core of grey chert with long blades taken off. (1) Comparison of historic maps shows that a number of new roads were built in the Silverlands area in the late 19th/early 20th century. The exact findspot of the flint material cannot therefore be determined. (2, 3)
