Tyne and Wear HER(879): West Boldon, Downhill, flints - Details
West Boldon, Downhill, flints
In his list of flints Gibbs appears to have conflated finds from two different places on Downhill. He mentions that a "Quarry on South-West side" and "trenches on South side, 'Nanny Cow Hill' produced Flakes and Artifacts. Cist burial, Iron Age". As the latter was certainly on the reservoir site of Nanny Cow Hill, and is represented by HER no. 873-4, it must be assumed that flakes and artifacts were found at the quarry.
