Item Name: Tools and Equipment

Description:

Flint material from watching brief at 28 Eastgate, North Newbald (grid ref SE9132 3685), in 1999. Comprises 191 flakes, 15 chunks and 3 unworked pieces. All of local flint - Lower Chalk flint and Till A flint. Generally of poor quality and many pieces incomplete. Some burnt. Generally large chunky pieces, from which a Bronze Age or later date is inferred. See report for further details. The site lies within the area of the Medieval village. 38 late Bronze Age features (c1000-600BC) were recorded, mostly postholes, but also one possible hearth. The postholes may represent several different phases of buildings (possibly rectangular). Traces of ditches and pits may represent allotments and domestic waste disposal in the Medieval period.
