finds


One of the most exciting things about archaeology is the finds. Holding an artefact that has been buried for 5000 years is a unique experience. 
A range of finds with a wide date range were recovered from topsoil and underlying layers representing the very mixed and disturbed nature of these deposits. These included early and late Neolithic flint, much of which comprised burnt, retouched tools and pottery ranging in date from early Neolithic (20 sherds) through to the Late Neolithic, Early/Middle Bronze Age and Late Bronze Age/Early Iron Age. This extensive date range illustrates interest in the site throughout the prehistoric period and into more modern times.
