Full description

'A bronze axe and a flint axe have been found here, and are in the Norwich Museum'. (S1).
In fact there are two flint axes (NHER 10320 and 10321) known, but no record of a bronze axe. Bryant often
confuses bronze and flint axes (as in his 'hoard of flint axes from Stibbard') and this may be a mistake for the other flint axe.
E. Rose (NAU).
