Area Oak

Information from 2004


This area is in the next field to the west of the bank in area Apple. It is south facing and directly above what we believe in prehistory was a shallow lake which eventually let out to sea from the Fal estuary. In 1988 this field was ploughed repeatedly to kill off the bracken that had almost covered the field. The following winter during field walking a number of flint blades were found. In the 2003 season we decided to put in some test pits along this bank and more flint blades were recovered.
