Full description

Curtis field 79.
V-perforated button, leaf arrowhead, petit tranchet derivative. 2 barbed and tanged arrowheads and plano-convex knife.
Information from (S1) via F. Healy (NAU).
E. Rose (NAU) 12 April 1979.

It is possible the button may in fact come from site NHER 5439.
The other flints are more likely to be general field scatter than from one spot and thus may be the same as those entered under NHER 14662.
Information from F. Healy (NAU).
E. Rose (NAU) 27 October 1988.

The button is probably the same object as that listed in (S2), which is listed as a find of the late F. Curtis. Its location is however given as Feltwell, suggesting that this object may be the same as that recorded under NHER 5164.
P. Watkins (HES), 21 March 2013.
