Tyne and Wear HER(188): Throckley, Dewley Hill, Mesolithic flints - Details
Throckley, Dewley Hill, Mesolithic flints
Fieldwalking by Dr. Joan Weyman has produced mesolithic flints from the area around the barrow, and this collection is still growing. In 1984 Roger Miket reported that she had found 118 pieces "from the area of the barrow, and in particular the eastern side, close to the foot of the mound. These comprised four cores, one core trimming, one microburin, eight scrapers, two borers, and two fragments of microlith. The remainder were waste". This material has been deposited in the Museum of Antiquities, with the accompanying field note books.
