Type and Period (1)
1955: Tusk and teeth of mammoth found circa 1955, in gravel pit at a depth of 16 feet (S3).
1961:Flint artefact - long narrow thin biface, found 1961, in same pit, apparently at a depth of about 18 feet, though the object was actually found in the washing and grading machine. Possibly an unusual hand-axe, but its unpatinated state and shape make it possible that it is in fact an Early Bronze Age dagger (S1, S2).
