FINDS IN THE NOWICH CASTLE MUSEUM
The Norwich Castle Museum holds a small collection of worked flints from Mattishall that are listed as "undated prehistoric 'pygmy' flint implements" (NWHCM : 1924.86.3). These are amongst a collection of predominantly Mesolithic worked flints that appear to have been collected by W. G. Clarke in several different parishes (although they are listed as donated by a G. H. Gurney).
1942 or before.
