Full description

Untitled Source (Migrated Record). SDV114051.

Two flint scrapers, three flint knives found in field by mr. Palmer. Extract from british museum letter reads: "these surface indications from your part of devon are very difficult to date. They may be late neolithic or early bronze age. There is a mesolithic element present, but it is impossible to say whether this is due to survival or mixture. ".
