Prehistoric Flint finds from Water- mains renewal at Boxted.

Map sheet TM03SW


Type and Period (1)

Full Description

The new main was laid immediately to the west of the lanes known as Carters Hill and Parsonage Hill. The initial phase of soil stripping 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. <1>.
