Pre 1907. Stray Find.
The Bolton Musem holds an unprovenanced Palaeolithic flint handaxe from Scoulton. Information from (S1). This find is is listed in (S2) and described in (S3) as a cordate handaxe in sharp condition. Also listed by (S4) and (S5).
As noted by Wymer (S3) this object is probably the reason that Scoulton was listed in (S6) as a location that had produced Palaeolithic material prior to 1907. The finder was listed as a W. C. Palmer of Hingham. This information was previously recorded separately as NHER 8801.
