Full description

NMR, SS70SW32 (National Monuments Record Database). SDV337399.

A broken point reminiscent of an upper Palaeolithic tool type (shoulder or tanged point) was found near Bow during field-walking of a newly discovered henge monument. It is a large angle-backed bladelet, although the shape is obscured by the distal end and the butt (citing Berridge and Roberts, and Griffith).
