High Callerton, Braid Hill, chert object
Tools and Equipment
In 1907 an object of chert was found on Braid Hill, near High Callerton. It was recovered from a heap of stones "which had lately been taken off from a field close by". Its dimensions were recorded as 5 inches long x 3.5 inches wide x 1.5 inches thick, and the material identified as freshwater chert, perhaps of the Lower Purbeck, in the south of England. The identity and origins of the object are obscure.
