Tyne and Wear HER(253): Flinton Hill, flints - Details
Flinton Hill, flints
In 1932 Gibbs recorded the discovery of a scraper, flakes and artefacts from Flinton Hill. A later authority reported that they were post-Mesolithic in character. The location of the find is on the edge of the limestone plateau overlooking the main river valley, near Hasting Hill prehistoric barrow site. The objects seem to have been in Sunderland Museum, but some at least are now missing.
