Tyne and Wear HER(860): Marsden, Trow Rocks coast, flints - Details
Marsden, Trow Rocks coast, flints
Miket records that, in 1963, 130 flint flakes were found on this stretch of coast, "mostly broken fragments but includes eighteen struck flakes, and possibly one core/hammerstone". Wymer, under the heading Marsden and Trow Rocks, reports that in Sunderland Museum, there were 4 cores and 32 blades/flakes from the W. Dodds collection. It is not clear whether these two groups, in spite of different quantities and descriptions, are really one.
