Fieldwalking by C Pendleton between 1965 and 1985 revealed scatter of worked distinctly patinated flint in S half of field (S4).

Note scatter of similarly patinated material, including beaker and polished flint knives in field to NW, MNL 149. Further similar material in BSEMH from MNL 063. A thin scatter of material occurs in between MNL 148 and MNL 149, so concentrations probably representative of an extensive occupation scatter (S4).
