Name:Palaeolithic handaxes and many other worked flints, Frimstone Pit

Summary

This former quarry pit produced a large number of Palaeolithic flint objects when it was being worked during the 1980s and 1990s. These finds were recovered by a number of individuals (including the late J. J. Wymer and R. J. MacRae) and were mostly recovered from the quarry's large reject heaps. The combined assemblage is of considerable significance, comprising over 60 handaxes and at least 100 other flakes, tools and cores. The handaxes are a mix of ovate and pointed forms and are of varying condition, with several being notably fresh.

Feltwell lies on the course of the ancient river known as the Bytham and it is believed that many of the Frimstone Pit artefacts were derived from pre-Anglian gravel deposits associated with this large watercourse. The nature of the assemblage is consistent with a Lower Palaeolithic date and it is possible that this material is as early in date as the finds recovered at the famous Boxgrove site in Sussex. A particularly notable feature of this assemblage is an unusually large number of quartzite artefacts. These were probably made on rounded Bunter cobbles that had been swept along the river valley from their source in the Midlands.

Full description

Site of the former Frimstone Pit. This sand and gravel quarry was opened in the late 1980s (on the site of a much earlier, smaller pit) and produced many Palaeolithic finds before its closure and conversion to a rubbish dump in 1999. These objects were recovered by various individuals, mostly from the quarry's large stone reject heaps. See (S1) and (S2) for further discussion of this material and other sites potentially associated with the pre-Anglian Bytham river. Finds from this site are also listed in (S3) and (S4), although it should be noted that only a small proportion had been discovered (or were known) at this time.

The known discoveries are as follows:

1992. Field Observation.
Found by [1], almost certainly on reject heaps (references given are the finders' collection numbers):
2 Palaeolithic ovate flint handaxes (Coll. Nos 337 and 338). See drawings (S5) and (S6).

14 April 1994. Field Observation.
Site visited by [6] and sections examined. Two potentially Palaeolithic flint flakes recovered; a larger flake taken in situ from the section and a second smaller example from talus at its base. These flints were examined by J. J. Wymer who identified the larger piece as a natural thermal flake. The smaller flake was however thought to be potentially genuine.

P. Watkins (HES), 5 March 2014.

1996-1999. Field Observation.
Refuse heaps searched on many occasions by the late R. J. Macrae. Over 100 Palaeolithic worked flints recovered, including 14 handaxes. These handaxes are of mixed condition with some lightly rolled and others heavily abraded. The assemblage includes 6 small ovates and a heavy (140mm long) pointed handaxe. Other core tools found included pieces with crude bifacial working that were possibly abandoned handaxes or scrapers. Cores and at least 90 flakes were also recovered, the latter mostly stone struck and thick wih few finishing flakes present. One of the cores was initially thought to be ‘proto-Levallois. Although it had a large flake missing it was felt that there was not enough evidence for intentional core preparation for this to be considered an example of Levallois technology.

Artefacts were also recovered by other individuals who sometimes accompanied Macrae on his visits. These included an ovate handaxe in very good condition found by [4] and two pointed handaxes found by [3]. Information from (S1), where one of the handaxes and an unusual core from the site are illustrated.

Significantly 15 quartzite Palaeolithic objects were also recovered from this pit. These objects were probably made from rounded Bunter quartzite cobbles that had been carried from the Midlands by the ancient Bytham River. The quartzite objects included:
4 cores/split pebble. One appears to display evidence for considerable expertise, with evidence for testing of the piece prior to the removal of a surprisingly large number of successful flakes.
3 cortical flakes.
2 bifacial flakes.
1 retouched flake of handaxe form.
2 retouched flake.
3 bifacial chopping tools
Information from (S2), in which a number of these artefacts are illustrated. See file for copies of relevant correspondence between Macrae and other researchers regarding his Feltwell discoveries (from British Museum Wymer Archive).

The bulk of MacRae’s collection is housed at the Donald Baden-Powell Quaternary Research Centre in Oxford (formerly part of the Pitt Rivers Museum, now attached to the Oxford University Institute of Archaeology). It is however recorded that it was arranged for “about 100 specimens from Frimstone’s Pit at Feltwell” to remain in the possession of T. Hardaker (Honorary Research Fellow, University of Liverpool). See copy of notes in file (from British Museum Wymer Archive).
P. Watkins (HES), 7 November 2013 and 18 November 2014.

13 June 1996. Site Visit.
Pit visited by J. J. Wymer. By this time a large portion of the original pit had been levelled at its base and tidied up. The reject heap was also much reduced and no artefacts were found.
Information from (S7).
P. Watkins (HES), 7 November 2013.

Pre December 1997. Field Observation.
Palaeolithic worked flints found by [1], almost certainly on reject heaps (references given are the finders' collection numbers):
5 handaxes (Nos 484-488). See drawings (S39), (S40), (S41), (S42) and (S43).
1 scraper (No. 489). See drawing (S44).
Identified by P. Robins (NCM), December 1997. See Secker Collection file for full descriptions.
P. Watkins (HES), 5 March 2014.

November-December 1997. Field Observation.
Several Palaeolithic worked flints recovered from quarry reject heaps by [5]:
1 ovate handaxe. See drawing (S45).
1 'tea cosy' type core. See drawing (S46).
1 flake.
Identified by P. Robins (NCM), 1997. See full descriptions in file. These discoveries were reported in (S47).
The core and the flake were subsequently donated to the Norwich Castle Museum (NWHCM : 1999.1.19.43).
P. Watkins (HES), 7 November 2013.

June-August 1998. Field Observation.
Worked flints found by [1], almost certainly on reject heaps (references given are the finders' collection numbers):
9 Palaeolithic handaxes (Nos 491-494 and 496-500). See drawings (S48), (S49), (S50), (S51), (S52), (S53), (S54) and (S55).

Identified by P. Robins (NCM), December 1998. See Secker Collection file for full descriptions.
P. Watkins (HES), 5 March 2014.

October 1998. Field Observation.
Worked flints found by [1], almost certainly on reject heaps (references given are the finders' collection numbers):
3 handaxes (Nos 503-505). See drawings (S57) and (S58).
Identified by P. Robins (NCM), February 2000. See Secker Collection file for full descriptions.
Subsequently donated to Norwich Castle Museum (NWHCM : 2010.9).
P. Watkins (HES), 5 March 2014.

3 February 1999. Field Observation.
Several hours spent searching large reject heap by J. J. Wymer and R. J. MacRae. MacRae found a large struck 'Levallois' core which is almost certainly the object described in (S1) and mentioned above. Several objects were also found by Wymer (all now part of the Wymer Collection held by Royal Holloway):
1 ovate handaxe (W4426). Well-made, patinated and in sharp, slightly rolled condition.
1 pointed handaxe (W4427). Deeply stained and rolled.
1 handaxe finishing flake (W4428). Patinated.
It was noted that all of these artefacts had chalky material adhering to them, suggesting that may have come from the base of the gravel, which rests on chalk. Information from (S59).
P. Watkins (HES), 7 November 2013.

18 February 1999. Field Observation.
Two hours spent by J. J. Wymer searching the reject heap. Only one flake recovered (W4429).
Information from (S59).
P. Watkins (HES), 7 November 2013.

15 March 1999. Field Observation.
Reject heaps searched by J. J. Wymer and R. J. MacRae. Only three broken and rolled flakes found. Inspection of section at far north end of pit showed gravel on chalk covered by scraped soil overburden. Too wet to examine closely.
Information from (S598).
P. Watkins (HES), 7 November 2013.

March-September 1999. Field Observation.
Worked flints found by [1], almost certainly on reject heaps (references given are the finders' collection numbers):
3 handaxes (Nos 506-508). See drawings (S60) and (S61).
1 ?scraper (No. 509).
Identified by P. Robins (NCM), February 2000. See Secker Collection file for full descriptions.
Subsequently donated to Norwich Castle Museum (NWHCM : 2010.9).
P. Watkins (HES), 5 March 2014.

April 1999. Stray Find.
Broken Palaeolithic handaxe found on farm track near Whiteplot Bridge (Feltwell). The gravel for this track had reportedly come from the Frimstone Pit and the size, shape and surface condition of the handaxe was consistent with it having come from this site. See NHER 59996 for further details.
P. Watkins (HES), 6 March 2014.

26 April 1999. Trial Excavation.
Section dug at north-west end of pit in advance of clay being tipped into the pit prior to its use for landfill.
5 Palaeolithic flint flakes were recovered, 4 of which were found in situ in the lower chalky solifluction lens. 1 possible quartzite flake was also recovered. These objects are now part of the Wymer Collection held by Royal Holloway (W4430-4435).
See file for copies of sections, descriptions of the flints and relevant correspondance (all from British Museum Wymer Archive). Further details also in (S59), which includes general photos of the pit and photos of excavated section.

Two of the flakes found during this worked were drawn by J. J. Wymer. These drawings were found in the British Museum Wymer Archive and had been mounted with illustrations of six other objects from "Feltwell" (S62) (2 handaxes, 2 small bifaces/handaxes, 1 core-like object and 3 flakes). It is likely that the other objects had also come from this site, although it is unclear whether they were exclusively from Wymer's collection. At some this figure had been reworked, with six of the objects redrawn and one of flakes swapped for a drawing of another (S63). It appears that these illustrations were never published, although this was clearly originally the intention.

8 December 2002. Field Observation.
Found by [3]:
1 Palaeolothic flint flake and 1 quartzite core.
Approximate locations listed by J. J. Wymer's in his notes on the 2003 trial excavation, see copy in file (from British Museum Wymer Archive).
P. Watkins (HES), 21 October 2014.

30 June 2003. Field Observation.
Found by on chalk by [3]:
1 Palaeolithic flint flake (mint).
Found on surface by [6]:
1 Palaeolithic flint flake.
Approximate locations listed by J. J. Wymer's in his notes on the 2003 trial excavation, see copy in file (from British Museum Wymer Archive).
P. Watkins (HES), 21 October 2014.

7 September 2003. Trial Excavation.
Investigation of deposits believed to represent the lower remants of the Bytham river by J. J. Wymer and [3]. These deposits comprised approximately 1m of sandy, chalky gravel that lay on a slope at the side of the pit, resting on solis chalk. This work took place in the area in which the December 2002/June 2003 finds had been recovered (which include a "suprisingly mint" flake"). Although an area of approximately 7m square was investigated the only find recovered was a slightly rolled flake.
Information from (S59). See copies of site notes, location plans and sketch section in file (from British Museum Wymer Archive).
P. Watkins (HES), 7 November 2013.

The material that the Norwich Castle Museum received from [1] in 2010 (NWHCM : 2010.9) also included 2 Late Neolithic/Early Bronze Age barbed and tanged arrowheads.
Information from museum records.
