Full description

June 1910.
Part polished flint axe. [1]
Above is all the information in the NCM register.
In Frances Healy's unpublished thesis this is located as 'Wretham Road near the Blacksmith's shop'. But I have failed to find any record of there ever being a Wretham Road in Sprowston, and think this is a confusion.
E. Rose (NAU), 11 May 1979.
