Type and Period (1)
1931: Narrow, leaf shaped flint implement of Solutrean type found at Felixstowe in 1931 (S1).
5ins long, found by Mr R Notcutt in 1932 in material taken to Felixstowe sea-plane station from the construction of Looe Road (TM 309 3540 - TM 3132 3553 - TM 3136 3539)(S2).
Pettitt and White (S5) argue convincingly, that all British examples claimed to be Solutrean are in fact Earlier Leaf points.
The description is broad, it could conceivably be of Upper Palaeolithic to Neolithic date.
