Full Description

Palaeolithic finds purchased off dealer from Ely, all said to be from "Suffolk", include possible Solutrean laurel leaf blade and two hand-axes (one sub-cordate with toad belly patina, probaby from Warren Hill, Mildenhall - MNL 00)(S1). Photographed.

Pettitt and White (S2) argue convincingly, that all British examples claimed to be Solutrean are in fact Earlier Leaf points.
