Full Description

Pre 1986: 5 flints - flakes, including pieces of long blades. Found in drain dredging (S1).

"Long Blade" suggests Terminal Palaeolithic, however this must be treated with caution as it could be simply a description rather than referring to a specific technocomplex. Therefore an Upper Palaeolithic-Bronze Age range may be more appropriate on limited information, (S2)
