1960. Context 2.
Scatter over this area of field of Beaker sherds and flints, including at 6867 8774 barbed and tanged arrowhead and 2 petit tranchet derivatives.

F. Healy (NAU) also adds to these a polished flint knife at 6865 8751 and a triangular arrowhead at 6865 8772 (the latter found in 1956), a transverse arrowhead, 2 scrapers, 2 fabricators, an axe, 10 other implements, and two scrapers in KLM. Healy suggests the axe may be the same as that in KLM, site NHER 5313, but that is supposed to have been found in 1960.

20 October 1983. Context 3.
Scatter of flints at TL 6867 8768.
R. Silvester (NAU) October 1983.
