Type and Period (1)
1892? There is a cordate handaxe in sharp condition in the Ashmolean Museum marked "20.6.92" marked "Pigsah" or Pigeon Lane". Evans 1897 refers to implements from Fornham All Saints but it could be a confusion with the Fornham Road pits in Bury St Edmunds, (S1-S6)
There is only one pit on Pigeon Lane.
