Type and Period (1)
1988-1990: Relatively thin scatter of circa 9 worked flints and 15+ heavily burnt flints (?Preh) found during intensive fieldwalking survey by John Newman in February 1990. Also fieldwalked in February 1988 - no prehistoric' finds. Site just above small stream feeding into Shottisham Creek. Heavily plough damaged, much crag turned up, also bone fragments. To South is large area of dark soil - ? infilled pit (S1).
Descriptions of flint finds are broad, dating to a specific period bracket is ill-advised. However, they may be later Prehistoric, based on details of discovery, (S2).
Also Iron Age, Roman, Saxon & Medieval records.
