Full Description

Between two streams at Upper Burbage Bridge, (SK 261830) the peat has been removed by gardeners revealing a scatter of flints. There are few tools among the 80 artifacts: two broad-blade microliths, a broken round scraper, eleven retouched pieces and a borer. There are three cores.
