Full Description

A black patch was observed during ploughing in autumn 1983. On being opened up this proved to be a patch of white heat-crackled flints and charcoal, oval in shape 2 feet long x 18 inches wide x 6 inches thick. With the flints were about a dozen sherds of grog temperede BA pottery, one sherd with fingernail rustication, mostly fairly thick (1cm) and probably from urns; one piece is more like fired daub and has a possible twig impression. Two sheep/deer teeth were also found, as were several small splinters of burnt and unburnt bone. Flint flakes were also recovered (S1)(S2).
