Full Description

Multi period site on parish boundary Wattisfield/Rickinghall Inferior with most of Cottage Field lying within Rickinghall. Many flint artefacts found by J W Blake including leaf shaped asymetric point (1937), hammer stones, scrapers, cores, a fragment of polished axe and a tabular flint tool with polished cutting edge (B Brown 1955), when ploughing this field over many years.
After a large black patch containing worked flints, Beaker pottery etc., was reported in 1955, IPSMG excavated the site in 1956-1957 (S1,S2,S3). Also BA and IA finds.
