1960. Stray Find.
1 Mesolithic flint tranchet axehead. See drawing (S1). Donated to Norwich Castle Museum (NWHCM : 1961.136). Information from (S2). Also noted in (S3), although no additional information is given. Notes in with the object itself would appear to suggest that it was actually identified by Jacobi are more likely Neolithic.
