Tyne and Wear HER(8007): West Brunton, flints - Details
West Brunton, flints
Fieldwalking of the southern part of this field produced a significant amount of flints. The raw material was largely local boulder clay flint of poor nodular quality. Low percentage of debitage. Few tools in proportion to the number of cores. One flint was burnt. Mixture of late Mesolithic and Neolithic tools. Two trenches were excavated across the areas with high concentrations of flints (false crest). However no features of archaeological interest were found in the trenches.
