Full description

1849
At Little Massingham a Roman urn was found and given to King's Lynn Museum.
True date?
Information from (S1).

I suspect this is in fact the same as site NHER 2289. (S2) would have referred to any 'urn' as Roman and the two parishes were often confused where they crossed the heath.
E. Rose (NLA), 20 October 1998.
