Full description

1990s. Stray Find.
Found at [1] by [2]:
1 "Meso flint axe".
This information comes from the Norwich Castle Museum's records but although a site number was assigned [3] no description has been found. It is however possible that this was one of a number of objects with a general 'Blackford Hall' provenance that were recorded by P. Robins (NCM) in 1999. These objects had been found by the same individual and are recorded under NHER 9890.
