Full description

1930. Stray Find.
Found by A. C. Savin on "Roughton Heath":
1 "Palaeolithic implement". In the possession of Mr Savin in 1934 but possibly subsequently donated to the Spalding Museum? Information from (S1).
This object is listed in (S2) and also noted on (S3) and in (S4), (S5) and (S6). In all cases this is simply a reference to the above information from the NCM's early records.

The area known as Roughton Heath covers much of the northernmost part of the parish and as a result the provenance of this object is uncertain.
Amended by P. Watkins (HES), 23 June 2014.
