Item:223886589499In the early 1960's I walked the moors from Rakewood via Robin Hoods Bed, the White House to Stoodley Pike, back again and criss-crossing, examining every likely exposed ground surface for flints. Sometimes nothing. Sometimes, after rain, a few little 'gems'. Here are the results of my efforts. (My Hades Hill barrow arrowhead finds and Grants Tower arrowhead finds have their own listings.)I do not know what the ground shows nowadays but at the time the exposed peat sections would show clearly identifiable birch and scotspine stumps and fallen trunks and branches. The flints always appeared on the ancient surface on which these trees had grown. Some flints clearly evident in the sand of the washed erosion chanels.The value of the flint to the ancient people is shown by the amount of secondary working/re-touching of even the smaller flakes.They all come in their period SUN VALLEY light tobacco tin.
