Full Description

1987: Loose scatter of 0.5kg of worked flint, mostly with a white or blue patination, some iron-stained and abraded including 4 scrapers. Possibly Mesolithic or Neolithic, but only 6% are blades. Located during the Fenland survey (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).
