Full Description

1993: Scatter (fairly thin) of 22 worked flints (11 patinated, 3 grey & 8 black with cortex) and one fire crackled flint found over about 150m strip of footpath (circa 2m wide) through mixed woodland forest SE of church overlooking floodplain of River Little Ouse (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).
