Find Spot record MCC4933 - Worked flint, Parsonage and Carters Hill, Boxted
|Grid reference||TM 002 329 (point)|
|Civil Parish||BOXTED, COLCHESTER, ESSEX|
Type and Period (1)
The new main was laid immediately to the West of the lanes known as Carters Hill and Parsonage Hill. The initial phase of soil shipping yielded medieval and prehistoric finds. Ground conditions varied, they were at their most favourable for finds recovery on Parsonage Hill and this factor may account for the relatively high flint retrieval rate in that area. Three blades, one arrowhead, flakes, cores and burnt flint were found, either Neolithic or Bronze Age. No identifiable prehistoric features.
