Full description

Roman sherds and a Neolithic flake found by the late P.L.K.Schwabe who told E. Rose (NAU), 25 August 1977.

1993. Found in same plot. Struck flint flake on surface. Buried at some depth, mechanism of musket. Finder [1].
Flint seen by E. Rose (NLA) at Norfolk Show 1 July 1993. Undatable prehistoric but probably part of same scatter as that reported by Schwabe.
Earlier owners of property are said to have collected guns, hence presumably the musket.
